School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-A gentle guitar helps viewers float into the story of a mother and her child as they make the life-changing journey from Mexico to America. Vibrant animation brings to life author and illustrator Yuyi Morales's first important encounter with libraries and books, and how this experience impacted the challenges the author faced in having to communicate in a language she was not familiar with. A lively and colorful invitation into a new world, with a hopeful message for all dreamers. © Copyright 2019. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
