Bank Street College of Education: Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year in Spanish

I am delighted to announce that two of my translations were included by the Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College of Education in their list of Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year in Spanish, 2023 Edition — Books Published or Translated in 2022. The books are: Cultivado en Harlem (written by Tony Hillery and illustrated Jessie Hartland) and ¡José! Nacido para bailar (written by Susana Reich and illustrated by Raúl Colón). Here is the entire selection (in PDF).

I would like to congratulate everyone included on this list. And I would like to thank everyone who is working on publishing (more) Spanish books in the US. 

I take this opportunity to celebrate the authors, illustrators, and my editor Danielle Collins for offering me the privilege to translate these books.
