My colors, my world / Mis colores, mi mundo

2013

by Maya Christina Gonzalez

Maya longs to find brilliant, beautiful color in her world. But when the wind blows, desert sand covers everything, and turns her whole neighborhood the color of dust. With the help of a feathered friend, Maya searches high and low to find the colors in her world. And she does in the vibrant purple of Mama's flowers, the juicy green of a prickly cactus, the hot pink clouds at sunset, and the shiny black of Papi's hair. As they follow Maya's search for all the colors of the rainbow, little readers will be inspired to look around and ask themselves, where can I find the colors in my world?

I know the river loves me / Yo sé que el río me ama

2012

by Maya Christina Gonzalez

Whenever Maya visits the river, the river jumps up to greet her. It cools her when the summer sun is too hot and holds her up when she dives in. It keeps her company in the quiet of winter. The river takes care of Maya and Maya takes care of the river. In this charming story about the wonders of nature presented in both English and Spanish, Maya Christina Gonzalez uses her remarkable talents as an artist and storyteller to inspire young readers to explore and protect the natural world around them.--from Publisher
