Today, we're thrilled to share the cover of the adorable picture book, Plátanos Are Love, written by Musa Alyssa Reynoso-Morris and illustrated by Mariyah Rahman!
But first, let's learn a little bit more about the book:
A delicious picture book about the ways plantains shape Latinx culture, community, and family, told through a young girl’s experiences in the kitchen with her abuela.
Alyssa says, "I am so grateful to my editor Alex for her expertise and time in making this book the best it can be. I look forward to making our ancestors proud with it and I could not have done it without Alex.
I also want to thank Mariyah Rahman for bringing me to happy tears with her stunning illustrations. Upon learning that the Abuela on the page was depicted in the image of both Mariyah's and my grandmother, I knew this collaboration would be special. I feel so lucky for the privilege of working with Alex and Mariyah. I hope you all enjoy the book when it comes out."
