Product Description

Bella's Recipe for Success by Ana Siqueira, and illustrated by Geraldine Rodriguez, is an uplifting story of a girl named Bella who struggles to find her talent shows kids the value of practicing a new skill, and that it's okay to make mistakes along the way. Bella wants to find out what she's good at. But she quits everything she (barely) tries because she's a disaster at it. Her somersaults are like clumsy jirafas rolling downhill, her piano playing like elephant feet. When she decides to learn how to bake with her wise old abuela, her first attempt at dulce de leche frosting looks like scaly cocodrilo skin. She must learn it's okay to try again or she won't be good at anything.

Peppered with Spanish vocabulary and set in an intergenerational Latinx home, Bella's Recipe for Success will show all kids the value of practicing to learn a new skill, and that it's okay to make mistakes along the way. Includes a recipe for Polvorones con Dulce de Leche at the back of the book so kids can have fun making their own.
