Today my whole day was brightened by finding out that Tía Isa Wants a Car won a spot on the 2012 Amelia Bloomer Prize list. This is a list of best feminist books — which I am so thrilled to say includes picture books for our youngest readers.
Thank you to the committee for such an honor. Of all the happy things that have come my way as a result of this book, this is one that I am so proud of.
Mil gracias, chicas…
