In Dreamers, award-winning author/illustrator Yuyi Morales tells her immigration story in spare, lyrical verse and spectacular artwork, inspired by the street art in the neighborhoods in which she lived. At age 22, she and her two-month-old son immigrated from Mexico to the San Francisco Bay Area. She learned English as her son was learning to read by sharing picture books at the local libraries-"Seuss and Sendak were their lingua franca. Dreamers is the powerful first book published by Neal Porter Books at Holiday House. It will make you gasp, move you to tears, and leave you speechless.
