Why Yuri? by emma ugarelli
Yuri is the main character in two of my children's books located in the Amazon rainforest. There was some speculation about this character's name and why the name Yuri when it's known as of Russian name and a Japanese name. It is also a Quechua Aymara name used in the Amazon region. In the book you can find plenty of animals originally from the region, like Jaguars, Toucans, and more.
