CriticasK-Gr 4-A stunningly beautiful picture book about Latin America with just a few well-chosen words accompanying each lovely painting, Vuelo del Quetzal presents the region in all its incredible contrasts, from the frozen glaciers of the far south to the windswept pampas to the pristine beaches. Although the story focuses on the region's diverse wildlife and natural beauty, it also touches on human accomplishments, from ancient times to the present. Although the book says nothing about the threats facing the flora and fauna of Latin America, readers need only connect the dots to realize that efforts to protect the environment need to be strengthened. A wonderful choice for any collection, Vuelo del Quetzal is especially recommended for schools and public libraries.
