La Frontera (Spanish/English)

Based on a true story! Join a young boy and his father on an arduous journey from Mexico to the United States in the 1980s to find a new life. They’ll need all the courage they can muster to safely cross the border — La Frontera — and to make a home for themselves in a new land.

Inspired by the childhood immigration experience of co-author Alfredo Alva, this story of perseverance is told in both Spanish and English to empower language-learning. Includes 4 pages of endnotes that unpack facts about Alfredo’s story and other stories like his/borders and borders around the world to help parents and educators talk with children about immigration, resilience, empathy and belonging.
