Después de vivir un temblor devastador, el espíritu de los vecinos en esta dinámica zona de la ciudad Mexicana se sacude, pero no se rompe.

Una pequeña niña y su perro se aventuran en su caminata diaria por la ciudad; brincan y giran con el sonido familiar de coches acelerando, de bicicletas rechinando, de amigables ladridos, y de los silbidos del carrito de camotes. Pero lo que no esperan es escuchar el escalofriante estruendo de un temblor… y después…silencio.

Con un texto cautivador y hermosas ilustraciones, esta cálida y reconfortante historia permite a los lectores reconocer que se puede escoger ser valientes y fuertes aún cuando se tiene miedo, y encontrar alegría y esperanza en medio de la tristeza.

After experiencing a devastating earthquake, the spirit of a charming and vibrant Mexican neighborhood might be shaken, but it cannot be broken.

As a little girl and her dog embark on their daily walk through the city, they skip and spin to the familiar sounds of revving cars, clanking bikes, friendly barks, and whistling camote carts. But what they aren't expecting to hear is the terrifying sound of a rumbling earthquake...and then...silence.

With captivating text and lively, beautiful illustrations, this heartwarming story leaves readers with the message that they can choose to be strong and brave even when they are scared, and can still find joy and hope in the midst of sadness.
