Everyone has a panza!

A precocious child declares that “panza is another word for belly.” Mamá’s panza is soft and ample, and it’s the little one’s favorite panza of them all. The young narrator interacts with Mamá’s body in various ways: playfully using it as a drum, snuggling up to Mamá’s panza while she reads a story, and hiding behind Mamá’s body during moments of shyness. Gleeful smiles and tender embraces make it clear that the child loves Mamá dearly. Mamá explains that she loves her panza, too: “Our bodies are miracles for what they can do…My panza kept you alive and keeps me alive as well. How could I not love it?” She shares that her panza was the child’s first home, and it stretched as the little one grew. Inviting illustrations depict a warm, sturdy mother using the strength and size of her curvy body to grow and raise a child. Her brown skin and black hair glow with health and affection. The child has short, curly brown hair and lighter brown skin; both are cued Latine. This affirming ode to bellies shows readers the strength of a woman’s love for her child and the wonderful things a body can do. Publishes simultaneously in Spanish.

A sweet, body-positive celebration of motherhood and its physical expression. (Picture book. 3-6)

This book is good for primary and intermediate children. I thought that this was such a good book. This book talks about the relationship between father an daughter. It starts off with a father taking his daughter on a motorcycle ride through town. It shows a small town within the Latinx community struggling. Although they look like they are struggling they all have each other.

My Papi Has a Motorcycle shows how even when surroundings change memories always hold true. The book does a good job of using descriptive pictures to show the town that Daisy and her father are driving through. It introduces kids to the idea of community, change, and hard work. It is a simple book with pictures that grab the readers attention. This book would be suitable for all ages due the the nature of the message and would be a good book for a read aloud.

1. I would recommend this book to lower to middle elementary school students.
2. This book is an example of a book that can show culture through a story. This book explains what it is like growing up in a Hispanic family. It also is a great book to explain father, daughter connection.
3.I would highly recommend this book due to the great father daughter connection as well as to introduce other cultures into the classroom
