Author Elaine Marie Alphin captures children’s imaginations while teaching them about a different culture -- and language -- in A Bear for Miguel. Maria lives in El Salvador in South America which children can locate on the map provided in the book. Things are not going very well for Maria’s family, but through some hard work and determination, she thinks she found a way to help them out. Alphin’s book is an inspiring tale that is simple enough for the early reader, yet deals with a suitably complex theme.
