Where Are You From?
2019 Nerdies Fiction Picture Book Award Winner Silver Medalist for Bank Street College of Education’s Best Spanish Language Picture Books of the Year Named one of Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2019 A Mighty Girl’s 2019 Book of the Year Named one of New York Public Library’s Best Books for Kids 2019.
This resonant and award-winning picture book tells the story of one girl who constantly gets asked a simple question that doesn’t have a simple answer. A great conversation starter in the home or classroom–a book to share, in the spirit of I Am Enough by Grace Byers and Keturah A. Bobo.
When a girl is asked where she’s from–where she’s really from–none of her answers seems to be the right one. Unsure about how to reply, she turns to her loving abuelo for help. He doesn’t give her the response she expects. She gets an even better one.
Where am I from?
You’re from hurricanes and dark storms, and a tiny singing frog that calls the island people home when the sun goes to sleep….
With themes of self-acceptance, identity, and home, this powerful, lyrical picture book will resonate with readers young and old, from all backgrounds and of all colors–especially anyone who ever felt that they don’t belong.
