This book is about accepting change. A little boy leaves his life behind in Mexico, to experience a new life style in New York. Mateo is eager to move with his aunts, but fails to realize that he is moving to a new country. Which means new people, new lifestyle new language!
I am a student at St. Francis College studying Education. This book has a lot of meaning to me because I also struggled making friends due to me not knowing the language. I was born in raised in New York by mexican parents who at the time knew no English. I hope this book helps students accept change.
