  • Stella Diaz Never Gives Up

    by Angela Dominguez Year Published: 2020 FIC

    Girl becomes activist, navigates friendships in fun story.

    Stella Diaz Never Gives Up, by author-illustrator Angela Dominguez, is a kind, inspiring story that teaches readers about conservation, activism, navigating friendship, and growing up that follows series opener Stella Diaz Has Something to Say.  When Stella's interest in saving the oceans blossoms at summer camp, she faces a struggle many young readers have experienced: how to blend different two groups of friends whose only connection is her. Stella's relationship with her brother is both sweet and authentic, showing how siblings can drift apart and come back together as they grow up. It highlights Stella's Mexican American heritage and seamlessly integrates lots of Spanish phrases. The author's note about why she italicized Spanish words throughout the book offers great insight into bilingual life.

Ever-sensible Jelly isn't so sure that's the best idea, but is all for Narwhal trying new things (instead of just eating waffles all the time, no matter how delicious waffles are). In this third book, Narwhal and Jelly star in three new stories about trying new things, favorite foods and accepting who we are.
