Description: Kindergarten-Grade 2-When a young girl's family moves to the United States, she begins the process of growing accustomed to a new environment. In simple, declarative sentences rendered in both clear Spanish and English, the child compares those things that are like and not like her home. "Look! Out the window! Snow! Not like home." Finally, as the book closes, she has made a thorough enough adjustment to fall asleep "at home" in her new country. Reisberg's gouache, acrylic, and pencil illustrations show both the protagonist's distress at being left out and her joy at finally being included in playground games, her mother's confusion at being unable to find chorizo in the store, and the delight in large family dinners. A "Can you find...?" page lists words in English and Spanish according to the page on which they appear. Not as verbally complex or as artistically done as Luis Garay's The Long Road (Tundra, 1997), this story nonetheless has a place in ESL and bilingual programs as well as in storyhours aimed at helping children understand both the difficulties of adjustment and the links that bind us all.
