Although this book was born in the work with Latino American mothers, its loving and powerful message gives voice to the immigrant mothers of our global community. This book is profound and it is transforming for children and adults as it allows in a gentle and sensitive way to talk about both the hope and the massive losses inherent to the journey of all of us, immigrants.
“¡Mamá, cuéntame porqué viniste!” scaffolds the telling of the story of why a Latin American mother would take on the journey of migration. In a colorful, heartfelt, and developmentally sensitive way, this life transforming book helps all immigrant mothers to tell their children about their origins, their dreams, and how their unconditional love brought them to the United States in the hopes of creating the life of safety, peace, promise, and abundance any parent would want to give to his child. This book expands on the psychological themes and experiences of immigrant mothers introduced by the author in her first book, “¡Mamá, cuéntame porqué viniste!”

The starting point of this little story was a conversation with my daughter, Lily. Her son was no longer sleeping in a crib and was getting used to a junior bed. He went through a period of waking up very early, around 5:30 in the morning and coming to his parents’ bedroom.
Needless to say, she was tired and annoyed with the whole situation.
In one of our phone conversations, I thought a story approach might help. Most of the story is exactly the story I told her spontaneously over the phone. I wrote it down and sent it to her. Once I shared the story with friends, the pictures were inevitable.
Everyone Is Asleep but Me is dedicated to my grandchildren—Erez, Maya, Ethan and Milan—who inspired the story. These days, they’re all great sleepers!

This story is the sequel to Freddy’s long and dangerous journey home. During his odyssey, Freddy, the fun-loving sea otter, will meet a variety of creatures that will be charmed by his friendly and modest nature. Their endearing friendships are mutually respected and enjoyed.
As with my stories, my primary purpose is to always include the following: family values, life-learning lessons and joyful endings. In short, my stories are uplifting and a joy to read.
Freddy is a wholesome role model with qualities of honesty, integrity, caring and humility. He knows how to be a true friend.
But like all living creatures in this world, Freddy has his lessons to learn. For one, he forgets that there is a fine line between boldness and recklessness. And each time he crosses that line, he finds himself in death-threatening encounters.
On his courageous journey, Freddy will need to find a way to escape the deadly grips of an enraged octopus, a beautiful but devious mermaid, the great white shark and Man-Humans.
Freddy is a delightful story that will bring joy and smiles for the entire family. The story reveals how to live the good life, and for those who can read between the lines, will receive a double treat. Young children, I am told, “love” my stories because they love animals.
Here’s a friendly challenge. Within the story, there are two factors that go beyond the laws of Mother Nature. See if you can find them.
Enjoy.$16.99–$26.99 Select options
