Reviews

"This well-written, beautifully illustrated bilingual book for 4- to 8-year-olds tells the story of once-grumpy Clara. Advice from the neighborhood curandera, or healer, helps transform a girl who learns valuable lessons from sharing and helping others." -- Elaine Ayala "My SA"
"Clara and the Curandera is a joyous book with powerful lessons in human kindness shining from every page. The pleasantly colorful illustrations reinforce the story's theme that no childish meanness can outlast the sunshine of shared kindness for long! Generosity of heart is the best medicine, as the curandera knows very well." -- Diane Donovan "The Midwest Book Review"
