About the Author

Diane de Anda, a third generation Latina, is a retired professor in the Department of Social Welfare at UCLA. Author of several children's books featuring Latino families, she has five more books due to be published in 2018 and 2019. Sue Cornelison is the author and illustrator of many children's books. She relishes her time with family, coaching her tumbling and trampoline team, and playing wildlife photographer when she isn't illustrating.

Reviews

"Author De Anda honors the real challenge that many children face when a parent is deported and reminds them that it's 'all rightto cry.' Available in both Spanish and English, this story validates a heartbreaking experience." Kirkus Reviews
"Ten-year-old Maricela stares at the mango-colored moon, reminiscing on the many nights during which she and her father did the samebefore his deportation. Social worker and scholar DeAnda frankly presents simple responses to the questions immigrant children might have after being separated from their parents. This Spanish version of the simultaneous English publication is sometimes awkward in its phrasing, but overall this is a much-needed text for many libraries serving families in similar situations. Though the book covers a heavy subject, Cornelisons evocative, light-filled spreads add a hint of hope, even while depicting how Maricelas dads plight affects the whole familythrough finances, living situations, school performance. Touching and timely, this is a strong choice for picture-book shelves, especially where bibliotherapy is needed." Booklist
