Raise awareness through literature. Each month we will bring in children's titles focusing on racial differences, prejudice and social justice. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to a foundation in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
It's almost time for Christmas, and Maria is traveling with her mother and younger brother, Juan, to visit their grandmother on the border of California and Mexico.
For the few minutes they can share together along the fence, Maria and her brother plan to exchange stories and Christmas gifts with the grandmother they haven't seen in years.
