Going Home - Cover
Going Home
Eve Bunting, Harper Collins Publishers 1994
An extremely touching book...It sensitively portrays the sacrifices Mexican immigrants have made by moving to America for their children to have a better life. Very well done themes of parental love, long car trips, the sadness of leaving one's home country, sibling relationships, and a child's growing understanding of the complexities of life. Although they came to the United States for better opportunities for their children, the loving Mama an Papa still consider Mexico their home. A treasure!
