Un mundo nuevo

By D. H. Figueredo
Illustrated by Enrique O. Sanchez

Paperback: $10.95

Six Pack: $65.70

It was Danilito's first day in America. He and his parents have just made a long, exhausting move from the Caribbean to New York City. The ocean and the palm trees he is familiar with are now replaced by tall buildings and crowded streets.

Danilito is scared. He has heard that some Americans are not friendly to foreigners. In addition, he does not speak any English. His parents have worries, too. They will have to find new jobs, a new home, and adjust to the new surroundings. This was going to be their first cold winter.

Danilito's worries disappear the next morning when he wakes up and Papa leads him on a magical trip of discovery. Translated from When This World Was New, Un mondo nuevo brings us a gentle and uplifting story of coming to America.
