I know that some of my fourth graders are currently learning about immigration. Well, here's a book that will bring you from the beautiful countryside of Mexico, to the hard reality of the migrant worker's life here in the United States. Esperanza is forced to leave the land she loves and has to learn to be brave and strong through all the hard times ahead. Follow along with her in her travels, you won't regret it!
