Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning PAT MORA's books include Tomás and the Library Lady and Doña Flor. She is an honorary member of the ALA, the highest honor the association bestows on non-librarian members.

LIBBY MARTINEZ has worked in the Texas political arena, has served as the Director of School and Community Partnerships at the Philadelphia Zoo, and is the founder of a strategy consulting practice. She lives with her husband in Colorado Springs.

Review:

"Drawing from family history, Mora (The Beautiful Lady) and her daughter Martinez tell the story of a girl named Libby, whose 80-year-old Mexican-born great-aunt, Lobo, becomes a U.S. citizen. Libby proudly announces to her class that Lobo passed her citizenship test and will soon recite the Pledge of Allegiance at her swearing-in ceremony. Since Libby's class is also learning the pledge, her teacher offers a bit of background information, noting that its author, Francis Bellamy, 'hoped that girls and boys would promise to be good citizens.' Libby and Lolo practice the pledge together, and Lolo offers a poetic response to Libby's question about why she wants to become a citizen; after she arrived in the U.S. as a child, 'the American flag — red, white, and blue — wrapped itself around me to protect me.' Barton's (The Invisible Boy) digitally painted pencil sketches have a soft, smudgy quality with a pink-and-pale-blue palette that echoes the colors of the American flag. Spanish words appear occasionally, in keeping with the melting-pot theme, and Barton's art easily conveys Libby and Lobo's loving rapport. Ages 3 — 7. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
