Lupe Lopez: ¡Reglas de una estrella de rock!

­Candlewick. Jun. 2022. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781536220063. SP.
K-Gr 2–Lupe Lopez is starting her first day of kindergarten and she has everything a rock star like she is needs: sunglasses, her mom’s old lunch box, and her pencil drumsticks—which she uses to drum some beats on tables and chairs. Lupe’s kindergarten teacher informs her that there are rules all students must follow: listen to their teachers, use an inside voice, and be a friend. But Lupe is a rock star—and rock stars play by their own rules. All Lupe needs is to make some noise and find some fans. She invites everyone to the library, but when no one shows up, she begins to wonder whether she really is a rock star. When two fellow classmates approach Lupe during lunch, she’s surprised to find they want to be her friends—and part of her band! The colorful illustrations are as vibrant and unique as Lupe herself, and with the lively and humorous Spanish text, bring the characters to life. Kids are sure to love reading out loud the different sounds Lupe makes with her pencil drumsticks.
VERDICT A fun addition to Spanish picture book collections that will encourage readers to be rock stars in and out of the classroom.
