Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $425,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

As she travels with her mom, dad, and brother to their new home in the United States, a young girl named Isabel writes letters to her aunt back home in Mexico, who has been teaching Isabel how to read and write in English. Isabel experiences lots of new sights and sounds, some of them overwhelming, and - after collecting boxes from the birthday parties that her mother caters - she builds a quiet sanctuary where she can slip away to read and think. But by the time Isabel's own birthday comes around, her quiet place is the centre of joyful, boisterous activity. Don't miss this sensitively illustrated, "moving, memorable portrayal of one child's immigrant experience" (Booklist).
