Reviews

"With Papá, 'I hold galaxies in my arms, ' the child tells us, and in these moving words, Aldama conveys the limitless boundaries of affection. In these vivid, lush images, we witness a father's love fostering a child's infinite imagination to soar." --Cristina Herrera, Latinx Spaces
"A heartfelt, playful, and culturally rich celebration of fatherhood through a Latinx lens." --Daniel A. Olivas, Los Angeles Review of Books
