Ooof, this is a tough one. A very challenging subject for a picture book, but Tonatiuh's execution is flawless. His realistic portrayal of the migrant experience makes for some extremely intense sections, tempered somewhat by the animal protagonists. I would recommend this to families who have faced similar situations and for older kids learning about migrant labor and immigration.

"There is a tunnel we can use," said the coyote, "but the snakes watch it. If you give them the tortillas you are carrying, I'm sure they will let us through."
