Bertrand’s book was reviewed by Booklist (June 2012)
“Bertrand crafts the characters in ways that feel familiar to us all while still honoring the uniqueness of Latino families, from their languages to special family events. The bilingual English-Spanish exchanges between Sofía and her mother emphasize that hard work, moral support, and determination can make for positive change. Fields’ full-page illustrations are vivid and composed of a mix of collage, acrylic, and crayon, and they capture the richly hued browns and the soft roundness of the faces in Sofía’s daily life.”
