Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Hepler
In this fresh story, a girl from a Spanish-speaking family newly arrived in this country compares life here with that in her former country. The colors here and the warm and friendly welcome of her relatives are "just like home" but playing indoors on the computer with cousins and no chorizo in the supermarket are "not like home." However, as she learns English, makes friends, and becomes used to her new life, she is finally "at home." Spanish text follows English text freely translated. Pleasant watercolor paintings depict situations in the family's tropical country and similar situations in this country with a curving frame as if to soften the presentation of the girl's experiences in school, at home, and in the neighborhood. Many children new to life in the United States will take courage from the girl's gradual assimilation into an urban situation A short glossary doubles as a "can you find..." exercise for identifying individual words. All in all, this a good addition to library bookshelves serving immigrant populations and a fine discussion starter about how you feel when in new situations and new locations.
Library Journal
K-Gr 2-When a young girl's family moves to the United States, she begins the process of growing accustomed to a new environment. In simple, declarative sentences rendered in both clear Spanish and English, the child compares those things that are like and not like her home. "Look! Out the window! Snow! Not like home." Finally, as the book closes, she has made a thorough enough adjustment to fall asleep "at home" in her new country. Reisberg's gouache, acrylic, and pencil illustrations show both the protagonist's distress at being left out and her joy at finally being included in playground games, her mother's confusion at being unable to find chorizo in the store, and the delight in large family dinners. A "Can you find...?" page lists words in English and Spanish according to the page on which they appear. Not as verbally complex or as artistically done as Luis Garay's The Long Road (Tundra, 1997), this story nonetheless has a place in ESL and bilingual programs as well as in storyhours aimed at helping children understand both the difficulties of adjustment and the links that bind us all.-Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
