About the Author

Angela Dominguez was born in Mexico City, grew up in the great state of Texas, and now resides in Brooklyn. She has written and illustrated several previous books for children, including Maria Had a Little Llama, a Pura Belpré Honor Book, and How Do You Say? / ¿Cómo se dice? As a child, she loved reading books and making a mess creating pictures. She's delighted to still be doing both.


"With its uplifting message and smiling characters, Dominguez's story reminds readers that life's woes are inevitable but can be mitigated by a song in the heart." --Booklist, starred review

"Authentic, heartfelt, and relatable. . . . A wonderful choice for group sharing." --School Library Journal, starred review

Praise for How Do You Say? / ¿Cómo se dice?

"Young children will delight in the antics of two endearing giraffes in this bilingual picture book." --School Library Journal

"This charming story is as light as air yet carries heft." --Kirkus Reviews

"As appealing to look at as it is to listen to, this book... provides opportunities to bring together those learning English, learning Spanish, or just learning how to make new friends and amigos." --The Horn Book

"Dominguez's bold, playful pictures keep the focus squarely on the giraffes' one-on-one interactions as she demonstrates something that many children know intuitively: speaking different languages is a minor detail when it comes to making new friends." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for Maria Had a Little Llama / María tenía una llamita

"A fresh and enjoyable reimagining of a traditional children's rhyme." --Kirkus Reviews

"A solid addition to a bilingual storytime program." --The Bulletin
