Reader's Favorite Reviews

“…utterly charming picture book…”

“…delicately captures the emotional spectrum of nervous anticipation, anxiety, and worry, gradually transitioning into the comforting embrace of newfound skills…”

“Author Pam Robbins has lovingly crafted a heartening experience in a book that beautifully navigates the complexities of adapting to a new language and school environment. The bright, hopeful narrative resonates with the emotional landscape of children facing linguistic and cultural shifts, with a clear balance between nerves, excitement, and the inevitable challenges that second language learners all face.”

“The illustrations by artist Eduardo Paj help to bring the emotions of the journey to life too.”

“The examples of how teachers and other students contribute to Ana’s learning experience are also valuable and should certainly be shared in any classroom where newcomers are present.”

“I would certainly recommend Ana Learns to Read as a work that imparts the importance of resilience but also fosters empathy by shedding light on the emotional journey of language adaptation, making it an invaluable addition to children's literature. “
