Dear Primo: A Letter to My Cousin
Meet Charlie and Carlitos. Charlie lives in America. Carlitos, his primo, lives in Mexico. Charlie takes the subway to school, plays basketball with his friends, and loves pizza. Carlitos rides his bicicleta to school and enjoys playing fútbol at recess, and his favorite meal is quesadillas. Their lives appear different, but do Charlie and Carlitos have more in common than it seems? Through his artwork and story, award-winning author and illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh introduces young readers to a very timely idea—that community is larger than just neighborhoods and schools.
