Picture Book Review: La Selva de Zonia

La selva de Zonia by Juana Martinez-Neal

La selva de Zonia
by Juana Martinez-Neal (Goodreads Author)
4 out of 5 stars

Zonia oye que la selva amazónica la llama y ella responde. Ella explora la selva cada mañana. Visita a sus amigos animales favoritos, y dice -Bienvenidos- a todos los bebés animales nuevos. Pero un día ve árboles en la jungla que han sido talados. La selva la está llamando otra vez, y Zonia decide responder y hacer todo lo posible para proteger su hogar en la jungla.

Me encantaron las hermosas ilustraciones de este libro. Las escenas de la jungla son atractivos. El arte es suave y de colores brillantes, mostrando las sombras bajo los árboles y el pelaje y las plumas de los animales. Hay una escena en la que la madre de Zonia está amamantando a un bebé, y el arte es apropiado y encantador con toda la belleza de la vida familiar.

Keep Reading for the Review in English!

Uno de los animales amigos de Zonia es una serpiente boa constrictor, y por eso no me quedaré con este libro. Se lo pasaré a alguien que no le tenga miedo a las serpientes.

Zonia hears the Amazon jungle calling to her, and she answers. She explores through the jungle every day. She visits her favorite animal friends, and calls “Welcome” to all the new animal babies. But one day she sees trees in the jungle that have been cut down. The jungle is calling to her again, and Zonia decides to answer, and do everything she can to protect her jungle home.

I loved the beautiful illustrations in this book. The jungle scenes are inviting and alluring. The art is soft and colorful, showing the shadows under the trees and the fuzzy fur and brilliant feathers of the animals. There is one scene where Zonia’s mother is breast-feeding a baby, and the art is appropriate and lovely with all the warmth of family life.

One of Zonia’s animals friends is a boa constrictor snake, so I will not be keeping this book for myself. I will pass it on to someone who is not afraid of snakes.
