Isabel Quintero narrates Daisy Ramona’s adventures on her dad’s motorcycle as they drive around their hometown of Corona, California. Corona brims with a comforting blend of the pair’s favorite community spots and friends, all of which are paired with appropriate sound effects: engines revving, birds chirping, construction workers’ hammering and sawing, children laughing, abuelitos’ greeting, and a dog barking. All those neighborhood noises could seem chaotic, but the regional Mexican music creates a bright forward-moving pace. Like a raspado on a hot summer day, Quintero’s narration hits the spot with the perfect amount of sweetness. Though the audiobook does not include the specificity of the Latinx imagery in the picture book’s illustrations, Daisy and her father’s day in their beloved hometown is worth a listen.
