Soñadora: Yuyi Morales

December 2, 2023 – February 25, 2024

Coming from a family of avid storytellers, it’s no surprise that the bright and cheerful artworks in the books by author / illustrator Yuyi Morales are filled with thoughtful details and powerful messages that appeal to all audiences.

Morales’ widely acclaimed works have been recognized with starred reviews in publications such as Publisher’s WeeklyThe New York Times, and Booklist. She is a six-time recipient of the prestigious Pura Belpré award and was the first Latina to receive a Caldecott Honor for her book, Viva Frida, in 2015.

Soñadora: Yuyi Morales comprises more than sixty mixed-media artworks from fourteen of Yuyi Morales’ books that will enliven and inspire viewers of any age.

Soñadora: Yuyi Morales was organized by NCCIL (The National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature), Abilene, Texas.
