I was so happy to have found this book! It had several beautiful lessons in the story. Teaching my daughter to think outside the box when facing an issue to use her creativity try it, if she fails keep trying and not give up! The little girl in the story found a way to recycle and repurpose trash bags cleaning her village and helping her mom make money for her education. It is really rare to find bilingual books like this one. It was great to see my daughter be able to distinguish the words and tell me "mommy in english Arcoiris is Rainbow!" We have been working hard in teaching my daughter both English and Spanish not mixing them and speaking Spanglish, this book doesn't mix both, but shows both of them and I love that to help my daughter speak both fluently! We have purchased this book for our home collection, because its so beautifully written.
