Adriana Sananes narrates the simple text with a hopeful spirit, mirroring the tale of a young family coming to America and finding themselves unintentional migrants. Lilting guitar music, the giggles of a baby, wind chimes, and more sound effects set the scenes as Morales tells of exploring a new country, and the joys of finding the free public library.
