Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The life of migrant workers is filled with hardship. The work is backbreaking, the wages are low, and the living conditions are usually pitiful. All of this is revealed through the eyes of Theresa as she and her family follow the ripening fruits and vegetables. However, she keeps in her heart and mind the happy days at Christmas when they return home to the Mexican village where her grandmother lives. The family must work, but they do have their pride and hope for better conditions. 1996 (orig.
