"Where are you from?" is on the surface a simple question, but for those of whom it is asked, there is no simple answer.
As a mother raising three emerging bilinguals, it is a question I dread they'll have to face someday. So I was overjoyed when the resonant and award-winning picture book, "¿De donde eres?" showed up at our door, a surprise gift from our favorite book fairy, fellow bilingual and bibliophile Titi Ashley!
How many times have you been asked "Where are you from?" For an emerging bilingual, that simple question can evoke a tumult of emotions. This book shows the story of a grandfather sharing with his granddaughter the perfect response to this loaded question. The beautiful illustrations and compelling storyline will pull on the heartstrings of everyone with the air that they aren't from here.
