The 2012 Pura Belpré Award Winners Announced!

A few weeks ago, the winners of the 2012 Pura Belpré Award were announced. I was so excited that three of them were chosen as the Book of the Month on our sister site, the Latin Baby Book Club, last year. You can find a list of this year's winners here.

One of the Illustrator Honor Book Winners was Rafael López, whom I greatly admire. Written by Samantha Vamos, The Cazuela that the Farm Maiden Stirred, is a beautiful book. Samantha sent me a video that Rafael created upon learning about the award. I'm happy to share it with you here...
