About Maria the Matador
Grade Level: Preschool – 2
Hardcover: 32 Pages
Publisher: Page Street Kids (February 5, 2019)
Maria loves tea parties and dancing and wearing her hair in pigtails, but more than anything in the world…Maria loves churros.
She’ll do anything to get her hands on more of them, even enter a bullfight. To win, she must outsmart the other matadors who don’t think she’s big enough, fast enough, or strong enough. With determination and creativity, spunky Maria will dance her way to victory–and into readers’ hearts.
Complemented by distinct, expressive illustrations, this charming story shows that you don’t have to fight to win, and you might even end up with more than you were hoping for.
