Author, entrepreneur, and mother Maria Flores Shaw spent many years as the Translation Queen in her neighborhood. Maria’s friends and neighbors sought her help as they routinely experienced communication barriers as non-Spanish speaking employers with their Latin Housekeeping Staff (and vice versa). Born and raised in a Spanish-speaking household, translations felt like second nature to Maria. She recognized a unique void in the marketplace – no such complete and easy to use English to Spanish translation book existed to help with common household phrases and day to day communication. As such, Maria created Maid to Translate, a beautifully illustrated, resourceful guide book that helps simplify your busy lifestyle and lets you communicate with ease and confidence.
Maria set out to write a book that translated with respect, clear instructions and effective communication. In creating Maid to Translate, Maria was sensitive to making sure she did not disrespect nor stereotype Housekeepers in any way as their jobs require hard work, a high level of expertise, and dedication. She also clarifies that not all Housekeepers are Latin, nor do all Latin Housekeepers have difficulty speaking English.
In author and illustrator Jessica Kirsenlohr’s debut children’s book, Shell-less Shelby, Kirsenlohr tells the story of a shell-less sea turtle in search of her shell and in essence, her niche and path in life. As Shelby tries on many different items along the ocean shore to see if they could be her lost shell, she and her best friend Gus meet new creatures and try new things in hopes of finding their shells so they can get back to their ocean families. The themes Kirsenlohr explores in Shell-less Shelby are:
• Trying new things until you find the things you are passionate about and good at
• Never giving up and enjoying the struggle of the journey
• The special bond of a best friend and the support system that comes with that friendship
• Being nice, grateful and helping others
• Imagination and creativity
