Sometimes by Hugo Ibarra and John Seidlitz Review
Sometimes (January 2016)
by Hugo Ibarra and John Seidlitz; Illustrated by Katia Lara
Written for 4-8 year olds, Sometimes follows the journey of Andrés and his sister, Clara, as they immigrate from Mexico to the United States. As Andrés starts at a new school, he receives encouragement from a beloved teacher, buoying his hopes until he and his sister are finally reunited with their mother.
Teaching a valuable lesson about holding on to hope, Sometimes shows the impact of the courage, strength and hope parents and teachers provide to help children through a time of uncertainty. A story of a family’s close bond above all, Sometimes is relatable for any child.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review - A very short book, but it holds a great message of strength while telling a story that will keep your children interested . It can also lead to a few discussions causing even more family time to occur.
