I love this book. It takes unexpected twist and turns.The whole book through your wondering what's gonna happen next.
Naomi is a very outgoing girl, and it's cool to see her learn how she really is.

Many children in our world today are facing similiar difficulties like Naomi and Owen's situation. Living in a non-traditional family, and having to understand that one's biological parent(s) haven't made the best choices are a strong reality for many children. Because of this, children who reads this story will find a strong character to identify with. Just as Naomi discovers her voice by the end of the story, young readers can discover their strength and voice through her. The other themes of discovering one's talents, being accepting of others, self-determination, and taking pride in one's family heritage are all needed life lessons for today's students.

Becoming Naomi Leon is a beautiful story about a girl who goes looking for her father and finds herself along the way. Pam Munoz Ryan blends the colors and smells of Mexico with the complexities of family in this heartwarming tale.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Fifth-grader Naomi's great-grandmother has been a loving guardian for Naomi and her brother since their mother abandoned them seven years before; now she has suddenly reappeared. In a starred review, PW called this 'a tender tale about family love and loyalty.' Ages 8-12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , From the award-winning author of Esperanza Rising comes a riveting novel about family and identity, drawn from the warmth, wisdom, and love of Ryan's own Mexican and Oklahoman heritages.
