Home at Last

By Sacramento Bee

Home at Last by Susan Middleton Elya is a touching story about a mother from Mexico who relies on her 8-year-old daughter to translate for her. Not until she’s cheated at the grocery store does she bend to her daughter’s wishes and begin to learn English. Colorful illustrations by Felipe Davalos of Sacramento capture every nuance of the family’s isolation and struggles to adapt to their new land.
