My name is Gabito the Life of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Me llamo Gabito la vida de Gabriel Garcia Marquez by Monica Brown
My name is Gabito is another bilingual book I read. It’s a biography about a boy who as a child had a wild imagination and grew up to be a well known author. He has an amazing imagination where his grandmother’s dictionary helped him develop his vocabulary and when he walked with his grandfather seeing the banana worker’s attributed a great deal to his stories. The pictures are amazing in this book. I loved the use of color and the definition of the characters features. I could see how intense his imagination was through the illustrations. This book would be for more advanced readers and also great for bilingual children.
