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

Rodrigo, Alessander, Laura and Nando are all from different parts of South America and yet they all have a common goal. They want a better life for themselves in America. They know the journey ahead will be long and treaturous but inspite of that they have hope. They see that many others have the same dream and in some instances are met with kindness. But even after they reach the border they still have an even longer journey ahead.
Although this story feels light and colorful the underlying darkeness is there. This darkness is the journey and the many harmful things that could and do happen to these children. This book will bring about an awareness that can not be ignored. The back pages provide maps of the journey, how you can get involved and how Baylor University is taking charge of The Global Hunger and Migration Project. Parents and teachers can use this guide as a way of bringing attention the this struggle and offer solutions as to how everyone can help.
