What would you risk everything for?
The Picture Book of the Week is Maria the Matador, written and illustrated by Anne Lambelet, author of The Poisoned Apple and The Traveler’s Gift.
About the Book:
Maria loves churros. Maria loves churros so much that she is willing to face the most ferocious-looking bull she has ever seen–a bull that has defeated the fastest, strongest, and biggest matadors in Spain–just to win a lifetime supply of churros. The only problem was that Maria was one of the smallest little girls in Spain and she had no idea how to win.
Writing Exercise for kids:
