"Sofi and the Magic, Musical Mural" by Raquel Ortiz

The large handpainted mural in the barrio is a familiar sight to Sofi, but one day as she walks by, she is sure one of the painted figures beckons her to dance. When she accepts the invitation, Sofi finds herself on an adventure that teaches her all about Puerto Rican music, art, and other cultural traditions. This bilingual book is perfect for readers from four to eight years old. Meet Raquel Ortiz, author of "Sofi and the Magic, Musical Mural/Sofi y el magico mural musical," who will read (and sign) her book on Saturday, May 7 at 10:30 a.m. -- as well as share songs and dance steps!
