2.5⭐️ Thought that the book was ok. While I really enjoyed the craft by the author, I thought that the story went by a little too slowly for my liking and I just didn‘t like it as much as I thought I would. #2022 #bookreview #bookstagram #historicalfiction #fiction #warfiction #literaryfiction #bookclub

KristiAhlers I really had to force myself to read this one. I mean it had important historical details but it was so slow. And so sad. Honestly if this was the first time I read her it would probably be the last. Thankfully it wasn‘t my first book by her. 2mo
melissajayne @KristiAhlers it was my first book by her… 2mo
BookHoarder32 I‘ve only read one by her, but I enjoyed her 2mo
KristiAhlers @melissajayne oh no! Violetta is a really good book of hers (edited) 2mo

This is a story about a boy named Neftali who had a dream of becoming something that his father didn‘t want him to be. His father was very hard on him as well as his siblings and forced them to do something in business or law. He wanted them to indulge in their studies. However, Neftali had bigger plans of becoming a writer. He indeed did just that and went on to eventually win a Nobel Peace Prize. This is a Pura Belpre Award winner.

From his poems grew flowers of hope and dreams of peace.

This story gives students an opportunity to read about someone they may not know too much about and exposes them to different cultural perspectives.

This picture book walks through the story of famous poet Pablo Neruda. The story discusses how the Chilean poet found inspiration for his poems and how he used his gift to speak out against poor working conditions of miners. What really stuck out to me were the illustrations in this book and the integration of Spanish words alongside their English counterparts.

Garabrandtreviews I loved A Long Petal of the Sea! I've always loved Allende's work, though. 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @Garabrandtreviews This was the first book that I read of hers for my book club at work. I loved it and it definitely won‘t be my last of her books! It was so beautifully written! 3mo
Garabrandtreviews I loved Eva Luna and In The Midst of Winter 3mo

Inspired by the childhood of Pablo Neruda, this middle grade novel is beautiful and an inspiration to young children who don‘t fit in or follow the norm, sometimes despite outside pressure to do so. I highly recommend this for classroom libraries.

mrp27 Ohh I‘ve been wanting to read this one! 4mo
Kenyazero I read this for a children's and YA literature course and absolutely loved it. It's such a good book. 4mo
