Book Review: Stella Díaz Dreams Big by Angela Dominguez

Stella Diaz has grown so much since book one! This is book three in this young middle grade series, and she now has friends, is in clubs, and is fitting in. In fact, that's the big problem in this book! 

She gets overextended and isn't able to fulfill all the obligations she's volunteered for. She wants to do it all and she has to understand that she needs to make choices and prioritize, super important lessons for kids that are usually skipped (or made by parents.) Also when she lets her friends down, she has to talk to them about it and deal with their anger and frustration. Another important lesson. There are a few Spanish words sprinkled throughout but nothing that tripped up this non-Spanish speaker. 

It's a fun read, not too hard, with good lessons that don't overpower the story. 

This book is published by Roaring Brook, a division of Macmillan, my employer.
