Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A visual feast

In simple poems and sun-drenched paintings, Alma Flor Ada and Simon Silva take us Into the fields and orchards, and into the lives of the people who work them. Using the letters of the Spanish alphabet as a template, Alma Flor Ada has written twenty-eight poems that celebrate honor and pride, family and friends, history and heritage. The artist, Simon Silva, grew up in a farmworker's family, and his extraordinary paintings speak to us directly from his own childhood. Awash with light, they will touch your heart, no matter what your age.
