Magdalena’s Picnic (El picnic de Magdalena) by Patricia Aguilar Morrissey
(published by Red Heart Books)
A bilingual adventure begins. This story explores a young child’s imagination as it takes her to a faraway place—the Amazon jungle—without leaving her backyard. The main character in the book, the one fearlessly leading the group ahead, is a girl named Magdalena. She is clearly a role model for young adventurers as she dodges dangers, makes bold choices, and finally, leads her group to its destination. Follow along with Magdalena and her two companions, a French rag doll, Brigitte and grumpy, stuffed purple tapir, Junior as they meet scary monkeys, beautiful macaws, and a hungry anaconda, pitcher plant and spotted jaguar!
