summary ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Monica Brown In English and Spanish author Monica Brown and illustrator Sara Palacios once again bring the irrepressible Marisol McDonald to life With her bright red hair golden brown skin mismatched outfits and endearing individuality this free spirited Peruvian Scottish American girl is headed straight into the hearts of young readers everywhe. This was a nice book about being your own person and celebrating differences in others Marisol's party was lovely and it was a nice message for young kids to discussThere was an underlying theme about why Marisol's abuela couldn't come to visit for the party Marisol saves her allowance and sends it for her to buy a ticket Instead she buys a computer to do video calls This was another sweet story about building relationships with people far awayMy one complaint While I understand that obtaining a visa is a real problem with which many people deal I found it difficult to explain to my 4 year olds It was a clunky heavy handed addition to an otherwise sweet picture book

Marisol McDonald and the Clash BashNothing seems right for soccer pirate princess unicorn loving Marisol Finally she comes up with just the right idea and when her friends arrive for her Clash Bash birthday a big surprise awaits But in a heartwarming turn of events Marisol gets the biggest surprise of all a visit from Abuelita via computerIn this delightful story told. Marisol is back again but this time it is her birthday She goes to the store with her mother to try and decide what kind of birthday party she wants to have but when she cannot choose just one she chooses them all As much fun as her party is the real fun and excitement begins when her grandmother comes in for a surprise visitThe illustrations in this picturebook are painted and are very precise and extremely fun Since Marisol is such a loud and bright young girl the illustrations should match that and they did a great job of that I think Marisol is such a fun and inspiring character I really enjoyed the two books I have read about her and I would definitely be interested in looking at and reading
