Let's Salsa / Bailemos Salsa

Foreword Review — Winter 2014

NO CHILDREN IN THE SALSA CLASS! Estela Juarez is confused and frustrated by the sign on the dance-room door at the recreation center. But, inspired by a school history lesson, young Estela brings fun and a desire for health to her public action. Parents and children will be energized by this lesson on leading a healthy lifestyle and actively participating in the community. Robert Casilla’s fantastically realistic illustrations are dynamic, and the bilingual narrative allows for Spanish speakers to enjoy the story as well. Ages five to eight.
