“We the Dreamers” describes the journey of immigrating to a new place through the eyes of a child. The narrative text is poetic and full of emotion. The illustrations, which seem to dance and sing, convey the story of crossing borders as a child.
This children’s picture book, told alternatively in English and in Spanish, highlights all the emotions immigrants experience throughout their journey: the characters end up feeling mystified, bemused, or even bewildered upon entering the United States.
Using colorful, imaginative illustrations and poetic narrative, “We the Dreamers” connects with its readers in an emotional and compassionate way, and it opens up the floor to holding conversations about immigration with children.
Children's book often have underlying messages and lessons in them. This one really has an important one that sheds light on dreamers in a positive way. Children of immigrated families have a different road ahead of them and this really looks at how daunting that can be.
The writing is so smooth and simple in a way that makes it easy to follow.
I loved the illustrations and how they really elevated the story.
