Got home and a pleasant surprise awaited me. My hardcover copies of my picture book, Alicia’s Fruity Drinks/Las aguas frescas de Alicia, had arrived. Even though this is my fourth book, the excitement of holding the latest book in your hands never diminishes. I ran my fingers over the smooth cover and stared in admiration at the gorgeous illustrations that author/illustrator Laura Lacamara created. So, thank you, Laura, for making “our” book so special.
