Description - La Frontera: El Viaje Con Papa / My Journey with Papa (Spanish/English) by Deborah Mills
Join a young boy and his father on a daring journey from Mexico to Texas to find a new life. They'll need all the resilience and courage they can muster to safely cross the border - la frontera - and to make a home for themselves in a new land. AGES: 8 to 10 AUTHORS: Alfredo Alva is a stonemason from La Ceja, Mexico. He and his family live in Texas, where he designs architectural details from stone for local architects. He met Deborah Mills while working on a local architecture project, and they worked together to write his story and obtain photos of his family and hometown in Mexico. Deborah Mills is an architect who has lived and travelled all over the world with her family. She divides her time between Texas and the Thousand Islands. SELLING POINTS: Told from the point of view of an undocumented immigrant child about finding a new home, learning a new language and finding a place to belong. Spanish and English used equally throughout, extending the access to this important message across multiple languages, cultures and reading levels. Themes of resilience and perseverance, familial separation, social anxiety and acceptance abound. Help unpack the definition and history of immigration as well as show photographs of locations and people depicted in Alfredo's story.
