Format: Hardcover
A young child shares a room with her mother at her abuela's house while her papá has been working overseas. She has not seen her papá for almost two years and she misses him terribly, but at least he calls every Sunday. Sundays are also special because her mamá does not go to her job then and they can spend time together.

One particular Sunday phone call brings surprising news. Papá asked if his wife and daughter would join him in the United States. Although the child is delighted that she will see him again, she despairs at the thought of leaving her abuela and her pet dog Kika after all those precious days spent together.

This picture book conveys to young readers the many tradeoffs that come when parents try to balance the need to support their families financially with the desire to spend nurturing time together. The story provides parents and teachers a different context for talking with young learners about paid jobs, the labor that goes into caring for family members, and the costs of giving up time with family in order to spend time working away from home.

Format: Hardcover
In this poignant story about family and sacrifices, a little girl living out of the United States looks forward to Sundays. This is the day when her beloved Papa makes a long-distance call back home from the US, where he is currently working. The little girl's mother has Sundays off from work, and together with the little girl's abuela (grandmother), the three females look forward to the brief but meaningful conversations with the little girl's papa. A simple notebook becomes a precious possession for the little girl, a medium by which she writes of her life back home and daily routines, things that are altogether precious to the little girl's father who sees the notebook as a lifeline back to his beloved home.

After more than a year, the little girl's papa has made plans for the little girl and her mother to join him in the US. As much as she yearns to be with her father, the little girl realizes that she must make sacrifices and leave behind people and things dear and familiar to her - her abuela, her best friend Rocio, and her dog Kika. Can the little girl come to terms with the sacrifices that must be made, and how will she cope? The story does not focus on the little girl's life after the move, but more on the process of getting there, and how she says her good-byes, in her own special way. This is a poignant tale, and can be used to discuss children's feelings when dealing with big changes.
