Juana and Lucas - Juana Medina

Staff Pick

Juana loves her native city of Bogotá, Colombia, maybe even as much as she loves her canine “furry amigo” Lucas. Not only does this amazing perro know how to be a fútbol goalie; he can also sense when Juana has had a bad day, such as when she learns that she has to take English lessons in school. She doesn’t see the point of trying to learn this confusing new language—until her grandparents promise her a trip to the Spaceland amusement park in Florida. It’s time to show inglés who’s boss! Local author/illustrator Juana Medina’s charming autobiographical story and endearing illustrations guarantee that Juana and Lucas (Candlewick, $14.99) will make many friends among young readers. Ages 6-9.
