"For All/Para Todos reminds us how my father spent his life inspiring poor people how to stand up for what they believe in." -Paul F. Chavez, President Cesar Chavez Foundation "...a poignant, bi-lingual tale about an immigrant girl's hopes and dreams as she embarks on an adventure to a new land... Highly recommended for readers interested in activism and learning more about the immigrant experience. -The Children's Book Review
Flor and her father leave their beloved country for the promise of a land called For All. Dad works long hours for little pay, while Flor struggles to find her place in school. In time, Flor realizes that not having the proper immigration papers means her father must work in unfair and unsafe conditions, and that doors of opportunity will be closed to her.
Flor picks up her green pen and writes from the heart about immigrants excluded from "justice for all." She inspires others to take action in the hope their new country will live up to its ideals. A timely, bilingual story written in musical rhyme, beautifully illustrated, calling children to compassion and courage.
