Today, Rachel Más Davidson’s first author-illustrated picture book is out in the world thanks to Beaming Books! Inspired by Rachel’s own experience and Cuban heritage, I LOVE YOU MUCHO MUCHO is already resonating poignantly with readers.
ABOUT I LOVE YOU MUCHO MUCHO:
Rosie is so excited to see her abuela and tell her everything that’s been going on–but Abuela doesn’t speak English, and Rosie doesn’t speak Spanish. They quickly learn over lunch, though, that hunger has no language–and neither does love!
Based on Rachel’s own experience, and featuring Spanish vocabulary words, this story speaks to the power to communicate outside of spoken language.
PRAISE FROM READERS OF I LOVE YOU MUCHO MUCHO:
“This was a very enjoyable little book. The story was very sweet and the illustrations were gorgeous. This is a great book to teach and learn a little Spanish along the way.”
“I Love You Mucho Mucho fosters discussions about communication beyond words, the power of food, familial love, and intergenerational relationships. It emphasizes understanding and connecting with our heritage and the bonds formed even when we don’t share a common language.”
“Nobody could fail to get something pleasant from these pages.”
“Great grandparent picture book with English/Spanish words/dialogue throughout.”
“This book is beautiful and poignant. Love transcends language.”
