Editorial Reviews

Gr. 1-2. The focus of this entry in the Green Light Reader series is less on the brief text than on the story as it unfurls in the clear beautiful paintings. A small girl tells how she goes with her parents to the farmers market to sell produce from their farm. The setting is in the Southwest, and they pass cactus as they drive through the desert under the stars before sunrise. Several people who stop by at their stall for corn, eggplants, and tomatoes are Latino, including the narrator's best friend, Carmen, and her family. But there's more to the story. One of the last pictures shows, casually, that the narrator is physically disabled; she stands tall with the help of a steel support attached to one arm. Look back and that support is a small detail in several previous scenes. There's nothing sly about the surprising discovery; it's clear that she has an active, happy life.
