Children’s Book Review: My Vida Loca by Jacqueline Jules

  These stories would be perfect for first or second grade early readers. This volume contains 3 different stories, each one with multiple chapters. They’re the perfect length for this age; a slight step up from picture books, but not approaching the length of chapter books written for older kids. 

And the stories are fun to read, watching the mischief that Sofia gets herself into. 

Considering that there are both English and Spanish words, it’s great that there’s a glossary in the back. (Though many words might be able to be figured out with context clues.) 

Overall, recommended. We need to see more diversity in our kids books (Sofia is Hispanic). Maybe I should rephrase that: we need to see our kids books more reflecting the real world – because the real world is diverse. 

Thanks to NetGalley, Capstone, and Picture Window Books for a copy in return for an honest review.
