I See the Sun in Mexico
I See the Sun in Mexico / Veo el Sol en Mexico is the fifth book in the award-winning I See the Sun series.
Luis’s working-class family lives in La Paz. His father is a cook on an excursion boat. His mother makes the best tortillas in the city. Today Luis will spend the day on the boat, swimming with the tourists on the beautiful sea. The clear blue water is a magical world filled with colorful fish and playful sea lions. In the afternoon, the boat anchors and everyone goes for a hike. The sandy trail, high above the shore, reveals snakes, lizards, cactus flowers and ancient rock drawings.
Lush illustrations and a bilingual story in English and Spanish provide Luis’s view of his beautiful country.

“Children speak varied languages, have contrasting national and regional attire, foods and traditions. But they all have family, games and daily routines that make childhood similar at the core.
Our differences are not so strange; there is beauty and creative power in diversity.”
