El día en que descubres quién eres (The Day You Begin)

By: Jacqueline Woodson

Illustrator: Rafael López

There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it's how you look or talk, or where you're from; maybe it's what you eat, or something just as random. It's not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it. Jacqueline Woodson's lyrical text and Rafael López's dazzling art reminds us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes—and how brave it is that we go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway.

Full-color illustrations created with a combination of acrylic paint on wood, pen and ink, pencil, and watercolors and put together digitally in Photoshop.
