A young girl embarks on a great adventure with her papá, counting animals, clouds, and stars along the way, in Dos conejos blancos, by Jairo Buitrago. The perilous real-life struggles of Mexicans and Central Americans travelling north toward the United States are softened with child-like enthusiasm, even as Rafael Yockteng’s illustrations portray fierce armed soldiers and rough carrilera dwellers living alongside the railway tracks, in this moving Spanish-language tale of one family’s migration.
