Reviews
In a clear child's voice, Argueta's poems...are intense, honest and moving....Perez's vibrant pastel art, on a bright, multicolored palette, perfectly complements Argueta's poems....Don't hesitate to read and show this beautiful book to young children. It is for them, and for all of us.-- "Multicultural Review"
This deeply moving collection of poems by award-winning poet Argueta is a joyful celebration of his Nahuatl heritage...Like the simple yet vibrant free-verse stanza, the raw illustrations are deeply expressive.-- "Criticas Magazine"
This literary offering stands out for its beauty and depth of expression...Perez's illustrations are colorful, detailed, and appealing, incorporating many indigenous icons...A unique and lovely collection.-- "School Library Journal"
This very organic sense of identity is just right for kids beginning to articulate who they are and how they fit into this world.-- "Toronto Star"
