Praise for DIEGO (1991):
"An accessible picture book about the life and work of Diego Rivera sounds like an oxymoron, but Winter . . . succeed[s] beyond belief. . . . The last pictures show him as a young man, perched on his scaffolding, brushes in hand, beckoning viewers on with his ardent glance. Readers will wish they could follow."
-- School Library Journal
"An excellent beginning biography."

* A Reading Rainbow Review book
* A 1991 Parents' Choice Award Honor winner
Praise for FAIR BALL! (1997):
Certain to be a hit with kids who take baseball history seriously, Winter's . . . handsome volume devotes a spread each to 14 stars of the Negro Leagues. Balancing stats with engaging trivia and anecdotes, the author will open readers' eyes to the injustices of segregated baseball. . . . This picture book [will] help set some records straight.
-- Publishers Weekly
A good, highly accessible introduction to a group of athletes who deserve to be as well known as their white counterparts.
-- School Library Journal

My niece is really into fairies, and I think the magic/mystical nature of the images and their slight darkness will really capture her attention. The story is also a nice lesson in sympathy for the sick and disabled. In general, a great book for Spanish learners. The book may not be as suitable for younger, native Spanish-speaking children, as the art is a tad dark, even though they would understand the language aspect at an earlier age. (It certainly isn't at all disturbing, though. I personally find it very intriguing.) I think this would be a great book for children around 5 years of age and older.
I grew up bilingual, but my son is growing up in a 98% English speaking household (father speaks only Eng). I love that this book allows some portion of his day to hear Spanish. This was a great ice breaker and we have ventured into more books/movies in Spanish.
