Using his childhood in México as inspiration Alarcón presents twenty-two thoughtful, down-to-earth poems in his second collaboration with illustrator Maya González. The bold brushstrokes of González’s art perfectly highlight the bilingual text of each stanza and Alarcón gifts the reader with a slice of insight into his family and childhood. Children will relate to the subject matter and art work making this an excellent choice for introducing poetry as storytelling.
