Libros We Love: LA PRINCESA ZANAHORIA | Sol Book Box




Princesa Zanahoria has big dreams for her life! Unfortunately, her father has his own plans for her. Will she be forced into a loveless marriage? Or can her “haba madrina” (gotta love a good pun!) save the day?

This lively, rhyming story invites you to play with language… and possibly your vegetables.

We always love when we can send a rhyming picture book, because rhyming is not only fun, it’s a very important part of helping kids become strong readers. Rhymes teach children how language works by helping them notice the sounds within words. Rhyming also helps children experience the rhythm of language (very important for learning to read with expression).

LA PRINCESA ZANAHORIA, previously a book box featured title, comes from one of our favorite children's book publishers in Chile. We especially love the beautiful cut-paper collage illustrations. Maybe they will inspire you to make your own vegetable collages!

We hope you enjoy this silly veggie love tale!
