TWO WHITE RABBITS
By Jairo Buitrago. Illustrated by Rafael Yockteng. What if you had to leave home and didn’t know where you were going? A child’s perspective of immigrating from south of the border to the United States is given in this award-winning tale. The young narrator relates the journey with her father on top of freight trains, the soldiers they encounter, the other people they meet along the way, and how she passes time by counting animals, clouds, and stars. The sensitive text and beautifully detailed illustrations inspire appreciation of diversity and thoughtfully illuminate the difficulties encountered by immigrants. Pre-K–3. 9" x 8½". Groundwood. 52 pages. ©2015.
