Argueta’s poems, in Spanish and English, are about gratitude for the four directions and all the gifts of life. Appropriate for beginning readers. 


Argueta’s poems, in Spanish and English, are intense, honest and moving. They are about gratitude for the four directions and all the gifts of life. They are about the beauty that is all around. They are about healing from the wounds of racism. And they are about knowing who you are forever. Whether he is called Tetl (by his grandmother) or Jorge (by everyone else), this young boy knows who he is and who his relatives are, and that is what these poems are about. Don’t hesitate to read and show this beautiful book to young children. It is for them, and for all of us.
