Bilingual English/Spanish. This nuanced picture book tackles the difficult and timely subject of family separation and deportation.

Near the border, the cars began to move very slowly. Pap , go fast. I want to see Mam , I said.

Jos loves helping Mam in the garden outside their home in California. But when Mam is sent back to Mexico for not having proper papers, Jos and his Pap face an uncertain future. What will it be like to visit Mam in Tijuana? When will Mam be able to come home?

Award-winning children's book author Ren Colato La nez tackles the difficult and timely subject of family separation with exquisite tenderness. Ren is donating a portion of his royalties to El Centro Madre Assunta, a refuge for women and children who are waiting to be reunited with their families up north. Joe Cepeda's bright and engaging illustrations bring this story of hope to vivid life.
