Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Gabriela Mistral, was the name Lucia Godoy Alcayaga gave herself because she liked the sound of it. Mistral loved words, teaching, and learning. She was the first Latin American writer to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. In this quiet and poetic picture book, we learn through Parra's imaginative illustrations and Brown's prose what her life was like. Not many children's books deal with Nobel Prize winners in this manner, but this is an exquisite picture book biography. The palette, though subdued, richly conveys bygone times. The text is in both English and Spanish. 2005, Northland, Ages 10 to 14.
