See KidlitWomen for daily links to posts by the children’s lit community, in celebration of Women’s History Month and focusing on improving the climate for social and gender equality. I plan to share my favorite books focused on girl characters and/or written by women through this month.
Lou Lou and Pea live in El Corazón, a tight-knit neighborhood where the two best friends can wander to visit their favorite neighbors and shops. But when bad things start to happen, from a ruined Quinceañera dress to Lou Lou’s prize camellia, the girls are determined to solve the mysteries, especially when they notice clues popping up in murals in the neighborhood. Buy the book! And keep your eye out for the second book, Lou Lou & Pea and the Bicentennial Bonanza coming out on 4/24!
