This is a great book for all children. I know at one point in time in everyone's life they have wanted to fit in. I do recommend parents and teachers to allow their children to read this book because it is a great way to help children cope with school and trying to fit in. This book is inspiring because it teaches children how to make their voices heard and ways to help them fit in. This is a book every child can relate to and it can also teach a child about background knowledge about Puerto Ricans. This is a very great way to teach a child about cultural diversity.

"For María Isabel Salazar López, the hardest thing about being the new girl in school is that the teacher doesn't call her by her real name. "We already have two Marías in this class," says her teacher. "Why don't we call you Mary instead?"

This quote is what most teachers today need to stray away from. We must embrace the different cultures and respect the different cultures inside our classrooms!
