Me gusta your smile, tu sonrisa, and your hugs, tus abrazos. Me gusta when we explore this spectacular world, el mundo, and gaze at all the stars, las estrellas. But most of all, me gusta that no matter where we are, I feel at home, en casa, when I'm with you.
In the affirmative and encouraging Me Gusta, acclaimed author and illustrator Angela Dominguez combines Spanish and English in a poetic and touching story of family, reminding us that through the adventures and the heartbreak, love conquers all and transcends language.
