Praise

* “An Afro Latino boy searches for his missing stuffed toy in this tender tribute to family, music, and childhood. . . . this work’s celebration of the diversity within Latino culture will warm hearts. A sweet tale recommended for diverse toddler storytimes and one-on-one sharing.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review
 
“Velasquez’s portrayal of a family that is both black and Latino (a rarity in children’s books) is refreshing. . . . this simple story with a twist should have wide appeal. Darling.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Velasquez’s text is a simple mix of English and easily decipherable Spanish . . . The illustrations of the narrator’s quest are active, consisting of many gestures and close-up facial expressions, and the colors are warm creams, blues, and oranges. Home life is multigenerational and loving.”—Booklist
