Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for A Journey Toward Hope:
"The paths of four migrant children from different Central American countries cross as they enter Mexico, and together they continue their journey to the United States. Though their reasons for undertaking the perilous journey are different, their hopes are not: They all hope for asylum in the U.S. . . . Along the way they encounter danger, hunger, kindness from strangers, and, most importantly, the strength of friendship with one another. . . . Artist Guevara has added Central American folk art–influenced details to her illustrations that provide depth to the artwork. . . . The backmatter explains the reasons for the book, helping to place it within the larger context of ongoing projects at Baylor University related to the migration crisis in Central America. An emotional entry point to a larger, necessary discussion on this complex and difficult subject." — Kirkus Reviews

Honors and Praise for Susan Guevara, for Chato’s Kitchen:
- Winner of the Pura Belpre Award for Illustration
- An American Library Association Notable Book
- A Parents' Choice Award Winner

"Guevara's cats are delicious send-ups of barrio characters, and Soto's words glisten with wit. Salud to this magical pairing of talents." — Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"A really cool book. . . . Guevara's striking illustrations enrich the text with delightful, witty details." — School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Fresh and satisfying. . . Distinctly seasoned with the sights and sounds of East Los Angeles; the sprinkling of Spanish words and phrases adds the perfect flavor." — The Horn Book
