Tomas and the Library Lady - Pat Mora

Mora, Pat. Tomas and the Library Lady. Raul Colon (illustrator). 1997. Alfred A. Knopf, Inc.
Review extract "Tomas and the Library Lady took place in Iowa and contained the recurring theme among Mexican American children's literature: migrants. The story and illustrations provided the readers with a glimpse into the lives and experiences of the children of migrant workers. "The light of the full moon followed the tired old car. Tomas was tired too. Hot and tired. He missed his own bed, in his own house in Texas."
