The Quiet Place
BY SARAH STEWART
Young Isabel has moved with her family from Mexico to the United States, where she finds much to be excited about, but where she is also lonely for her aunt Lupita and for her native language. In letters to her aunt, Isabel describes finding her way in a new country with the help of her own retreat, a quiet place made of boxes. Set in the 1950s for ages 5 and up. Beautiful full color illustrations with a long fold out page. Ranked by Kirkus Reviews as a Best Children's Book of 2012.
