Elizabeth Zunon has gotten a glowing starred review from School Library Journal for her first authored-illustrated picture book, Grandpa Cacao. Out May 21st, the book is based on Zunon’s own experiences as a child, learning about her grandfather’s cacao plantation. The review praises the illustrations’ “majestic feeling,” and how they “utilize colors to elicit an emotional connection.” “With an educational approach sure to expand the minds of children, this is an engaging multicultural addition for a public library picture book collection,” the reviewer writes. We couldn’t agree more!
