Home at Last

By Reader's Edge

(The Reader’s Edge, The Book Bag) Ana Patino is adjusting well to her new life in the United States, but her mother is having problems because she doesn’t speak English in Home at Last. When one of the babies falls ill, Mama tries to get help, but no one can understand her. Now convinced that she needs to learn English, Mama agrees to take lessons. As Mama gains new language skills, she also develops a sense of confidence and belonging. Susan Middleton Elya’s sympathetic tale of a mother-daughter bond and a spirit that triumphs against the odds is enhanced by the vivid art of Felipe Davalos.
