Sometimes By Hugo Ibarra and Illustrated By Katia Lara

Sometimes by Hugo Ibarra and illustrated by Katia Lara is a book for 4-8 grade students this book is about a family immigrating to the U.S. and based on first-hand stories. Sometimes follows the journey of Andres and his sister, Clara as they immigrate from Mexico to the United States. They see many strange sights for the first the boarder filled with cars a strange U.S. town and wonder why they had to leave their mother behind. As Andres starts at a new school he received encouragement from a beloved teacher buoying his hopes until he and his sister are finally reunited with their mother.

My Opinion: This book tells like it is for kid’s migration to the U.S. from another country and it has been happening for years. It is a good read for those who want to understand more about how scary it is to come from another country to the USA and I hope someday they have a book of a person immigrating from the U.S. to another country like China or Germany as you never hear about those experiences.
