Summary
After moving from a small village in Mexico to a town in the United States, Eduardo is sure it will never feel quite like home. The other children don't speak his language and they do not play futbol. His family promises him that he will feel right at home by the time Christmas comes along, when 'your words float like clouds from your mouth' and 'trees will ride on cars.' With whimsical imagery and a sprinkling of Spanish vocabulary, Gretchen Griffith takes readers on a multicultural journey with Eduardo who discovers the United States is not so different from Latin America and home is wherever family is
