Daniela’s “número uno greatest buddy,” Evelyn Del Rey, is shifting away. However right this moment, for one final time, they’ll play. Identical to they at all times do.
Daniela and Evelyn are two Latinx ladies who reside throughout the road from one another in residences which can be nearly an identical. One has a bed room with “sunny yellow” partitions and lives with each her mother and father and a cat; the opposite has a bed room with “cotton sweet” pink partitions and lives together with her mom and a hamster. However they “are largely the identical, identical to [their] residences. However not after right this moment.” Because the grown-ups pack and the shifting truck is loaded, the women take pleasure in one final day collectively. When the time involves say goodbye, plans are made and large hugs are given. The ending hints at a friendship that lasts into future years, however the great thing about the ebook lies within the sheer pleasure and exhilaration exhibited by the women as they benefit from the current second. Newbery Medalist Medina’s versatility is in proof right here, exhibiting she’s as a lot in tune with the picture-book viewers as she is with older readers. With strains that go at angles and splashes of daring colours and patterns, Sánchez’s paintings is as energetic and stuffed with motion as the 2 ladies. Layered purposes of colour create texture, and the interiors of their residences are cozily beckoning. Evelyn is depicted with brown pores and skin and locs, and Daniela with pale pores and skin and two puffy pigtails.
A young story of friendship and alter.
