DESCRIPTION: A girl in love with bubble gum goes on a fantastical journey into the world that creates her favorite treat.
WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: Chavela loves no treat more than the chicle or many flavored bubble gum she chews every chance she gets. She enjoys blowing bubbles of different sizes and shapes as she listens to her grandmother tell stories about her home town and the magic tree that makes chicle possible. A trip to the store changes everything when Chavela spots a different kind of gum she has never tried and decides she must have. This sets off a series of adventures that take Chavela on a fantastical journey to the rainforest world and the special people whose hard work produces her favorite treat. Brown and Moreles’s collaboration is complete with Spanish terms and explanations in English that make this book accessible to multiple language learners. Enjoy this delicious treat for eyes and ears and taste buds of anyone who loves bubble gum!
