Book Overview

Esperanza Rising joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus content

Esperanza thought she'd always live a privileged life on her family's ranch in Mexico. She'd always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home filled with servants, and Mama, Papa, and Abuelita to care for her. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp. Esperanza isn't ready for the hard work, financial struggles brought on by the Great Depression, or lack of acceptance she now faces. When Mama gets sick and a strike for better working conditions threatens to uproot their new life, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances-because Mama's life, and her own, depend on it.

   Excellent book!
I had to read this book for one of my college courses (as an Elementary Education major), and I loved it! We used many aspects of this book to see how we could teach students through it with material like looking at imagery, using context clues, and defining words. I would definitely recommend this to educators and about 5th grade to middle school (8th grade). It was fun to read as a college student though!
