A New Home
Publication Date: 1 April 2019
As a girl in Mexico City and a boy in New York City ponder moving to each other's locale, it becomes clear that the two cities - and the two children - are more alike than they might think.
But I'm not sure I want to leave my home. I'm going to miss so much.
Moving to a new city can be exciting. But what if your new home isn't anything like your old home? Will you make friends? What will you eat? Where will you play? In a cleverly combined voice - accompanied by wonderfully detailed illustrations depicting parallel urban scenes - a young boy conveys his fears about moving from New York City to Mexico City while, at the same time, a young girl expresses trepidation about leaving Mexico City to move to New York City.
Tania de Regil offers a heartwarming story that reminds us that home may be found wherever life leads. Fascinating details about each city are featured at the end.
Mexican author-illustrator, Tania de Regil is making her American debut with A New Home.
The author was inspired to write A New Home, while she was going to art school in New York City. She was often surprised by how little her friends new about her home city of Mexico-and how much it has in common with the Big Apple.
Perfect for #ownvoices and #weneeddiversebooks collections
