Summary
A little girl moves to the United States from Mexico with her family and writes letters to her aunt in Mexico about her new life
Summary
As she travels with her family to their new home in the United States, a young girl named Isabel writes letters to her Auntie Lupita back in Mexico. Isabel experiences lots of new sights and sounds, some of them overwhelming, and -- after collecting boxes from the birthday parties that her mother caters -- she builds a quiet sanctuary where she can read and think. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
