Mommy, Tell Me Why I Am Radiant

Mommy, Tell Me Why I Am Radiant



"Mommy, Tell Me Why I Am Radiant by Sandra Gonzalez and her daughter, Julia Rae Rodriguez, is an absolute delight. This heart-warming book will enhance the home libraries of English-speaking, Spanish-speaking, or dual-language families and is sure to be one that children request over and over again. After all it’s all about them!


Above and beyond that, the book’s value lies in the authors’ skills in describing in vivid English and Spanish the depth of the mother-daughter bond and in modeling how parents’ words so powerfully lay the foundation for life-long learning. Its messages emphasize the fact that parents truly are their children’s first and most important teachers. 


In the narrative, a mother vividly describes her love for her daughter as she compares her to the brilliance of Mother Earth. Her words present concrete images that reinforce her daughter’s language comprehension as well as her connection to the natural world and to her own uniqueness. Reynaldo Mora’s vibrant illustrations will give mothers and daughters even more in the world outside their doorsteps to talk about together. Readers will also find bilingual parent letters and nine-year-old Julia Rae Rodriguez’s child-friendly definitions as an added bonus.


This is a book destined to become a family treasure."

Ann C. Barbour, Ph.D., professor, author, consultant for Sesame Workshop and content director for KCET’s A Place of Our Own and Los Niños en Su Casa.
