“Luca’s Bridge” Review

Thankful for the Advance Reader’s Copy of this book! It releases on 4/16! 

I really enjoyed reading this book “Luca’s Bridge”. The reality is very sad when a family is deported, but I did like how it showed a positive light with the boy playing his trumpet in acceptance of the changes in his life. I did enjoy how it portrays the family’s Mexican culture in the story, though the music, food, landscape, and the family. This book promotes a compassion for immigrants in the United States and it raises awareness of the impacts that deportation has on families and children. The illustrations are beautiful! I definitely recommend this book as it serves as an educational tool to teach about the Mexican American culture and bilingualism. This book is great for both children and youth alike.

Me encantó leer este libro “El puente de Luca”. La realidad del tema es muy triste cuando una familia es deportada, pero me gustó como muestra lo positivo de como el niño acepta su nueva realidad tocando su trompeta. También me gustó como muestra la cultura mexicana a través de la música, la comida, los paisajes y la familia. Este libro promueve compasión para los inmigrantes en los Estados Unidos de América del Norte y también crea conciencia sobre los impactos que tiene la deportación en las familias y niños. ¡Las ilustraciones son hermosas! Definitivamente recomiendo este libro, ya que sirve como una herramienta educativa para enseñar sobre el bilingüismo y la cultura mexicana.  Este libro es excelente para ambos niños y jóvenes.
