“Familiar colors and foods give this joyous book a distinctively Cuban feel.”
Kirkus Reviews

My Big Family

Written by Yanitzia Canetti
Illustrated by Micha Archer
Published by Reycraft Books

Alex is excited that his family is coming to visit. First Grandma arrives and Alex rearranges his room so she can fit. Then Aunt Celia arrives, and the cousins start to pile in. Yummy Cuban food fills the house with delicious aromas, and everyone is happy—except Alex. He can’t even find space to sit down and Papa believes more can always fit. When Mama announces Cousin Beto is arriving too, Alex has had it! “No one else can fit in this house!” What can Alex do?
