This book shares poems that explore a Pipil Nahua boy’s connection to Mother Earth and how it heals the wounds of racism. Tetl’s skin is brown, his eyes are black, and his hair is long. He’s different from the other children, whose taunts wound him deeply, leaving him confused and afraid. But Tetl’s grandmother knows the ancient teachings of their Aztec ancestors, and how they viewed the earth as alive with sacred meaning. With her help, he learns to listen to the mountains, wind, corn, and stones.  Vivid illustrations celebrate nature s redemptive powers, offering a perfect complement to the poignant story. Hardcover by Jorge Argueta, illustrated by Lucia Angela Perez
