Lyrical prose and creative illustrations speak to the imaginations of young children, communicating some of the hardships and disappointments that Anna and her family experience. A detailed author’s note speaks to the wisdom of parents and teachers, helping them to further teach young learners about the rights of migrant workers to decent working and living conditions. Separating this work from other children’s books about migration and work is the focus on Mexico’s Mennonite community and the issues faced by some of its members in Canada and Mexico.
