The bright music that opens this production segues into Almarie Guerra’s equally cheerful and clear narration. This audiobook features the point of view of Juana, a girl living in Bogota, Colombia. Guerra reads at a measured pace, moving with ease between English and Spanish, adding to the characterizations and guiding listeners through the story, whether they know any Spanish or not. Juana’s life revolves happily around her dog, her mother, her grandparents, and soccer. But when she has to start learning English in school, it’s a trial that Guerra highlights with amusing tones of whining and outrage. This humorous slice of life will appeal to a wide range of listeners. A.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
