My Diary from Here to There / Mi diario de aqui hasta allá

By Orange County Register

This poignant, bilingual story of a young girl’s journey to an unfamiliar new home . . . is more than an immigrant’s tale. It sympathetically explores the fear many children have of the unknown and their sorrow at leaving the familiar behind. . . it’s comforting whether you’re moving to a new town or to a new country. . . . Wonderfully illustrated by Maya Christina Gonzales, in warm-hued paintings with a childlike sensibility. The book’s uplifting ending reassures children that they, too, can deal with the new and unknown. Grade: A
