Good-bye Havana, Hola New York

Good-bye Havana Hola New York
"Lush, evocative." --School Library Journal
"Raul Colón's art...has a sweetness that's sometimes tinged with anxiety, sometimes with hope. A fine addition to books about the immigrant experience." --Booklist
"This gentle look back at an important time will also speak to contemporary children whose families are starting anew in the United States." --Publishers Weekly

When five year old Gabriella hears talk of Castro and something called revolution in her home in Cuba, she doesn't understand. Then when her parents leave suddenly and she remains with her grandparents, life isn't the same. Soon the day comes when she goes to live with her parents in a new place called the Bronx. It isn't warm like Havana, and there is traffic not the ocean outside her window. Their life is different--it snows in the winter and the food at school is hot dogs and macaroni. What will it take for the Bronx to feel like home?
