Gracias • Thanks by Pat Mora, illustrated by John Parra, has been awarded Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor!

Given by the Association for Library Services to Children, the Belpré Award and Honors are given to Latino/Latina authors and illustrators whose work celebrates the Latino experience. We’re very proud of the book, and we’re very pleased that the committee has recognized John Parra with an Honor for his outstanding illustration of Pat Mora’s poetic text.
