About the Author
-- MS. CAROLINA, FOUNDER OF FUN FOR SPANISH TEACHERS"We need more books about Black kids doing ordinary and extraordinary things especially in Spanish. ... The language [in Simone Visita el Museo] is really easy and familiar yet with some vocabulary building, perfect for read alouds."
-- MS. MACEO CABRERA ESTEVEZ, FOUNDER OF BOOKLANDIA"Breathtaking illustrations! ... Very well done. Dialogue shines, especially in the kind, loving and respectful language used throughout the family ... Simone expresses curiosity, excitement and gratitude for this adventure, and the story carries a warm, enriching tone of a well-loved family that appreciates their city and the people within it. Tremendous talent shown by both author and illustrator."
-- JUDGE, 26TH ANNUAL WRITER'S DIGEST SELF-PUBLISHED BOOK AWARDS"This book is delightful. The illustrations are beautiful and impressive. I enjoyed the way the book provided advice to children in a nuanced fashion: the appropriate way to behave in a museum, not being sassy with your parents, and insights on who some of the people who work in a museum are and what they do."
-- MR. GEORGE NORFLEET, AUTHOR OF A PILOT'S JOURNEY: MEMOIRS OF A TUSKEGEE AIRMAN, CURTIS CHRISTOPHER ROBINSON"I loved this book! It not only beautifully describes the joy of visiting the museum, but the illustrations show the beauty of the city. As a former third grade DC Public School teacher who taught for 32 years, I think every DC public school and DC library should have this book so that teachers can use it as a learning tool for field trips."
-- MS. CAROL WILLIAMS"Simone Visits the Museum is an awesome book. As a parent, I am thrilled to find a book whose character resonates with my children. As someone who has been in DC for over 30 years it is refreshing to see a story that reflects a positive experience of a young brown girl. The book depicts the city and all it has to offer in a realistic and engaging way. As an entrepreneur, I am so proud of Kelsi for her persistence, commitment and integrity throughout the process."
