“Two cousins live in a pair of towns divided by the U.S.–Mexico border in this bilingual ode to cross-border kinship…Each hometown’s idiosyncrasies mainly arise through the vibrant, cozy artwork, where each pueblo features bustling, distinct neighborhoods. . . Sweet, good-natured musings on border life.”
Kirkus Reviews

My Town / Mi Pueblo

Written by Nicholas Solis
Illustrated by Luisa Uribe
Published by Penguin Young Readers Group

In this bilingual picture book, cousins from opposite sides of the border visit each other’s towns and delight in their similarities and differences.

Two cousins live in two towns, separated by a river. But there is also a bigger divide—the US-Mexico border—which means they live in different countries. On the girl’s side, English is the main language, and on the boy’s it’s Spanish. The cousins love their towns, and they love visiting each other’s, where they notice some things are the same and some are wonderfully different, adding up to a vibrant world full of even more possibilities.
