Importantly, this book can spark discussions about diversity and many ethnicities/races. Regardless, the illustrations are unbelievably gorgeous and the storyline is just beautiful with lush descriptions and lots of familial love.
What I loved: The illustrations in this book are stunning, appreciable whether you are a young reader or an adult. The title question which sparks the book is acknowledged for its loaded meanings of not belonging, and Abuelo’s answer is really incredible. This lush and lyrical book is a fantastic read for preschoolers through elementary schoolers and can spark some important conversations.
Final verdict: Stunning, beautiful, and unique, this book is a must-read for elementary schoolers who can understand the feeling of not belonging and who can also learn about heritage and this loaded question. The illustrations and gorgeous text will appeal to a wide range of readers.
