I was asked to make a short video for the American Library Association: Youth Media Awards expressing my reaction to the good news about The Cazuela that the Farm Maiden Stirred winning a Pura Belpré Honor. It's all about drawing and thanks for checking it out here.


  1. Yea!! Congratulations! I haven't seen your book yet, but I'm going to write it down and order it from my local bookstore.

    The drawing video is really fun- a party on paper coming to life!

  2. Jill-I really like the idea of a party on paper. Thanks so much for your kind support and for ordering the book-especially at a local bookstore. We've all got to do our part to keep independent booksellers in our community.

  3. I really like The Cazuela! Your illustrations are so colorful and beautiful, that's why I wanted to buy the book. But the text is really fun too!

    I gave you a little award for your blog over at mine- Art on the Page http://artonthepage.blogspot.com/ :)

    1. Jill,
      Thank you so much for your kind words at your blog about Cazuela. Gracias!
