by Cynthia Harmony (Author), Teresa Martínez (Illustrator)
After experiencing a devastating earthquake, the spirit of a charming and vibrant Mexican neighborhood might be shaken, but it cannot be broken.
As a little girl and her dog embark on their daily walk through the city, they skip and spin to the familiar sounds of revving cars, clanking bikes, friendly barks, and whistling camote carts. But what they aren't expecting to hear is the sound of a rumbling earthquake...and then...silence.
With captivating text and lively, beautiful illustrations, this heartwarming story reminds readers they can choose to be strong and brave even when they are scared, and can still find joy and hope in the midst of sadness.
