Inhaltsangabe: This book will warm readers' hearts with its simple, but gripping story based on the real-life adventures of a Mexican immigrant born with physical disabilities. Linda Kurtz Kingsley's charming tale is supported by her beautiful watercolours, sensitively rendered to capture the landscapes and people in Lupe's life. Lupe's mother, Mami, leaves for America to get the best care for her daughter. They cross the desert at night and arrive in California where their new life begins. Mami works as a farm laborer, and while in the fields she sings 'Cielito Lindo' to little Lupe. It means beautiful little sky, just like the blue skies of California and Mexico. The years pass, and Lupe is ready for school. She cannot walk, so she uses a wheelchair, and has an aide, who helps her understand her lessons in English. Lupe has moments of self-doubt, but is reassured by Mami with her quiet refrain, "You'll do fine". A shared giggle in the classroom after an incident when Lupe accidentally runs over her teacher's toe -- caramba! -- leads to friendship. Encouraged by Mami, friends, and teachers, supported by accommodations, and respected for her Hispanic heritage, Lupe blossoms. She is on her way, confident that she can do anything she wants, and knows she'll do fine! This aspirational story is full of hope, offers life lessons about working hard to achieve your dreams, and shows the value of a supportive community. The book includes an update on the adult Lupe's accomplishments and future plans, as well as a short glossary of Spanish-language vocabulary words featured in the story.
Inhaltsangabe: Blue Skies for Lupe is an inspiring children's book based on the real-life story of Lupe, a girl who left her native Mexico for California when she was only a baby, tucked in her mother's shawl. Author and illustrator Linda Kurtz Kingsley's beautiful watercolors illustrate her story and capture the colorful landscapes and people in Lupe's life. "When I was born," Lupe says, "I wasn't perfect. My spine stuck out, my head was too big, and my body was too small." Doctors told her mother Mami that she would never walk because she has spina bifida. In search of better care for baby Lupe and filled with hope, Mami takes her across the Mexican dessert into California, where they begin a new life. Encouraged by her mother, friends, and teachers, supported by accommodations in school, and respected for her Mexican heritage, Lupe blossoms . Blue Skies for Lupe is full of optimism and life lessons about compassion, hard work, and the value of a supportive and welcoming community for those who face tough obstacles. The book concludes with an update on Lupe's accomplishments and future plans, and a short glossary of Spanish-language vocabulary featured in the story.
