Book Fiesta by Part Mora, Illustrated by Rafael Lopez

Book Fiesta by Pat Mora

This book, which celebrates Children’s Day/World Book Day is one of the most magical and whimsical pieces of literature you will ever pick up.Every time you pick it up, we promise you’ll want to revel in every turn of the page. The nutshell? Glimpses of children reading all over the world on World Book Day.  Each illustration feels straight out of the imagination of a child who has just discovered the power of stories, and reminds me to always work to get books in the hands of all the children around me. And for the rest of my life, I will now always celebrate Children’s Day/World Book Day.
