Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

                           The Book                                                                                                                                                                                       

When it comes to fixing and building things Beatriz is awesome!  She is a master crafts-girl and very, very smart.  She is an inventor extraordinaire!  

Every Friday Beatriz volunteers at a pet shelter after school.  The pet shelter is run by Dr. Carter who is her mom's best friend. It is there that Beatriz meets and interacts with an adorable disabled dog named Oreo.  Oreo only has three legs due to a car accident and has difficulty balancing and walking.  

Beatriz is put in charge of taking Oreo outside and tries to help him walk.  It is at this time that Beatriz decides to come up with a plan to help sweet Oreo become mobile once again.  She is sure, being the fix-it-whiz she is, that she will be able to construct a plan to help  Oreo have a better quality of life.  With brute determination and putting her problem solving skills into motion can Beatriz become Oreo's superhero and save the day?  

The illustrations are colourful, bold and full of emotion and heart.  I love that a girl protagonist is a builder and fixer.  She is a character that will inspire other young girls to give it a go too.  The message is positive and the results will have kids cheering for both Beatriz and Oreo.  I highly recommend this book.
