Rosa is always thinking about helping others. But it’s all that thinking that makes others say – “Wrong again, Rosa!” Follow Rosa as she finds a way to help herself by learning how to read. Join Rosa in this delightful alphabet book for emerging readers. Look again and again throughout the book to find all the alphabet pictures, using both Spanish and English words.
“A charming way to introduce children to the alphabet as well as a second language.”
Bettina Woolard, author of “Do You Love?”

About the Illustrator
Paige Poppe is a watercolor painter and designer based in Scottsdale, Arizona. After leaving her native state of Arizona for college, Paige returned and saw the desert with new eyes. She found a new appreciation for the landscape, and her artwork is a modern, vibrant spin on the desert and nature. Paige has extended her art to a full product line of wedding stationery, cards, prints, and original watercolors. She loved illustrating her first book, Rosa Gets it Right, so wonderfully authored by Nancy Rivest Green.
