Lil’ Libros. (Dr. Ochoa’s Stellar World). Mar. 2024. 22p. Board $12.99. ISBN 9781948066310. BL.
Baby-Toddler–This series, created by the first Latina to go to space, takes a delightful look at the arts—the “A” in STEAM—in this bilingual board book. Offering young readers a colorful guide to connect the dots among visual expression, music, writing, theater, and science, Ochoa seeks to engage children fully, encouraging them to think outside the box. Each page is beautifully illustrated, with children portrayed as painters, astronauts, performers, and writers. Readers will learn how to use new words in Spanish and English and absorb their meanings in context. For Ochoa, creativity is the word, and this little book provides great conversation starters for kids whose curiosity is nonstop. Her invitation to make the most of the arts every day will satisfy children’s inquisitiveness about the way the world works and provide new outlets to explore their surroundings. They will also learn how to work with others to make the world a better place. This book also gathers ideas that readers can refer to again as Ochoa’s “Stellar World” series expands.
VERDICT Science and art come together in meaningful ways in this bilingual book, and kids will be inspired to experiment with STEAM concepts in playful ways. A great choice for bilingual board book collections.
