What Are You Doing? by Elisa Amado
Amado was born in Guatemala and is a frequent translator of books from Spanish to English. I love the literacy tie-in with the subject matter in this book.

Interestingly, I had a child ask if this book was originally written in another language and if so, how could we read it? Thanks to Lieselotte Lauert, the translator, we can read it in English!

We also featured a book display and other travel related activities at our Imagination Station during this special week. For the rest of May, we are featuring the Reading without Walls challenge, which is a nice tie-in and continues the theme of global awareness.
