IslandbornIslandborn by Junot Díaz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Lola needs to write a report about where she came from, but she was only a baby when she left. She asks her family, friends, and neighbors for their memories of the Island. This is a lovely book, engaging and smart, avoiding sentimentality and condescension. My three-year-old enjoyed it, too, even though it's long for her. The beautiful art by Leo Espinosa also deserves special mention.
