A Bank Street College Best Spanish Language Picture Book of the Year/El mejor libro infantil en español del año

Evelyn Del Rey es la mejor amiga de Daniela. Hacen todo juntas e incluso viven una al frente de la otra en la misma calle en apartamentos que son casi iguales: Daniela con su mami y su hámster, y Evelyn con su mami, su papi y su gato. Pero no después de hoy—no después de que Evelyn se mudé de su casa. Mientras tanto, las niñas juegan entre las cajas de mudanza hasta la hora de despedirse, y se prometen mantenerse en contacto, pues saben que su amistad siempre será especial. Esta es una tierna historia sobre la amistad y los cambios en la vida, bellamente escrita por Meg Medina, realzada con las ilustraciones coloridas y vibrantes de Sonia Sánchez que describen el vecindario urbano de las niñas.

Praise For…

Medina’s earnest, poignant words are accompanied by Sánchez’s vivid, earth-toned illustrations that depict Evelyn and Daniela playing, their families’ affection for one another, and the energetic, youthful spirit that both girls possess. The story line is honest and genuine, encompassing the emotional roller coaster of a best friend moving away, and as readers watch the friends grapple with the new reality and cope with temporary grief, they’ll also witness both girls embracing a relationship that time and space cannot tear apart.
