When Esperanza and her family arrive in the United States from Cuba, they rent a little house, una casita. It may be small, but they soon prove that there's room enough to share with a whole community. "It was a little house. Una casita . . . It was small. It smelled like old wet socks. . . But even though they were far from home, The family was together." As Esperanza and her family settle into their new house, they all do their part to make it a home. When other immigrant families need a place to stay, it seems only natural for the family in la casita to help. Together they turn the house into a place where other new immigrants can help one another. Esperanza is always the first to welcome them to la casita. It's a safe place in a new land. Terry Catasus Jennings first came from Cuba to the U.S. in 1961, when she was twelve years old. With The Little House of Hope , she tells an inspiring, semi-autobiographical story of how immigrants can help each other find their footing in a new country. A Spanish edition, La Casita de Esperanza, will be released simultaneously. A Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection
