- Summary: “This Spanish edition of Caldecott Honoree Yuyi Morales’s Dreamers, published simultaneously with the English edition, is the author’s own immigration story and a tribute to the transformative power of hope – and reading. In 1994, 25-year-old Yuyi Morales traveled from her home in Xalapa, Mexico, to the San Francisco Bay Area with her two-month-old son, Kelly, in order to secure permanent residency in this country. Her passage was not easy and she spoke no English whatsoever. But due in large measure to help and guidance provided by area children’s librarians, she learned English as her young son learned to read, through the picture books they shared together. In spare, lyrical verse and the vibrant images for which she has become legendary, Yuyi has created a lasting testament to the journeys, both physical and metaphorical, that she and Kelly have taken together in the intervening years. Beautiful and powerful at any time, but given particular urgency as the status of our own Dreamers becomes uncertain, this is a story that is both topical and timeless.” Call Number: E Mor
