Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
Using paper cutouts, the author has illustrated the message that while we are different, we are the same and that everyone is enriched when they can exchange their cultures. One example is the name for the star at the center of the solar system-some say "sun" and others say "sol," but to each of us it is the same. Each page has text in Spanish at the top, English at the bottom, with vibrant art work.
