The Advocate's Toolbox

Two White Rabbits

Jairo Buitrago. illus. by Rafael Yockteng. Groundwood.

K-Gr 3–As a girl and her father travel toward an unnamed border with their coyote, they encounter repeated barriers and armed resistance. The spare text and arresting digital artwork present a child’s-eye view of the journey, as she counts the people who live by the train tracks, items on a makeshift barge at the frontera, and the clouds in the sky. A timely and powerful book.
