The Dreamer From the time he is a young boy, Naftali hears the call of a mysteries voice. Even when the neighborhood children taunt him, and when his harsh, authoritarian father ridicules him, and when he doubts himself, Naftali cannot ignore the call. Under the canopy of lush rain forest, into the vast fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain, he listens and he follows. This story combines elements of magical realism, with biography, poetry, literary fiction, and sensorial, transporting illustrations by Peter Sis. Read The Dreamer
Esperanza Rising Esperanza Ortega possesses all the treasures a girl could want: dresses; a home filled with servants in Mexico; and the promise of one day presiding over El Rancho de las Rosas. But a tragedy shatters that dream, forcing Esperanza and her mother to flee to Arvin, California and settle in a farm camp. There, they confront the challenges of work, acceptance, and economic difficulties brought on by the Great Depression. Read Esperanza Rising.
