Cuando tu niñera es una bruja (If Your Babysitter Is a Bruja)

Illustrated by Irena Freitas

About The Book

Este animado libro bilingüe proporcionará una lectura en voz alta encantadora para los pequeños de gran imaginación.

Si es la noche antes de Halloween y tus padres contratan una nueva niñera que viste un sombrero negro mientra ríe como un cuervo…¡debe tratarse de una bruja! Y de seguro, tú eres su nueva víctima.

Pero sé valiente. No temas.

Después de todo, tienes algunos trucos bajo la manga. Y sabes muy bien cómo lidiar con brujas. Se necesitará más que eso para arruinar la mejor noche de tu vida.

Este divertido y rítmico relato es perfecto para niños que se deleitan en lo fantástico y que saben que las brujas—¡y la magia!—son reales.

Why We Love It

“Irena Freitas’s joyful, vibrant art is a perfect complement to the adorable, rhythmic text about a very small girl with a very massive imagination! Ana Siqueria’s prose seamlessly incorporates the multicultural protagonist’s natural Spanish-English code-switching in a way that is organic without becoming inaccessible to monolingual audiences, and it is a delight to read out loud in any language.”

—Alyza L., Associate Editor, on If Your Babysitter Is a Bruja
