Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author recalls the year when his farm worker parents settled down in the city so that he could go to school for the first time. Jaunito is bewildered by the new school and misses the warmth of country life. Everything he does feels upside down, and his tongue feels like a rock when he speaks English. But his sensitive teacher and loving family help him find his voice through poetry, art, and music. Full-color illustrations.
