Bella’s Recipe for Success by Ana Siqueira. illus. by Geraldine Rodriguez. Beaming. ISBN 9781506468105
Gr 1-3–Bella’s hermano can play the piano with his eyes closed, and her hermana is excellent at flipping and cartwheels like an expert gymnast. Bella tries to play the piano and flip in the air like her siblings, but her attempts are less than fabulous. When Bella asks Abuela to help her bake polvorones, Mexican cookies filled with dulce de leche, her first attempts don’t come out quite as they should, and she becomes discouraged. Abuela nudges her to try again, and Bella begins to notice that even her piano-playing brother and somersaulting sister make mistakes, but each time they do they make sure to keep trying. This intergenerational tale about family traditions and grit will be a welcome addition to emerging or transitional readers’ shelves.
