Carlos knows that when the soldiers arrive with warnings about the Communist rebels, it is time to be a man and defend the village, keep everyone safe. But Mama tells him not yet -- he's still her quiet moonfaced boy. The soldiers laugh at the villagers, and before they move on, a neighbor is found dangling from a tree, a sign on his neck: Communist. Mama tells Carlos to run and hide, then try to find her ... Numb and alone, he must join a band of guerillas as they trek to the top of the mountain where Carlos's abuela lives. Will he be in time, and brave enough, to warn them about the soldiers? What will he do then? A novel in verse inspired by actual events during Guatemala's civil war, Caminar is the moving story of a boy who loses nearly everything before discovering who he really is.--Amazon.… (més)

This is a story that looks like a poem. If you are a person who doesn't read poems--don't worry--It is really a story.
The author just uses the pattern of the words on the page
.....to give our mind the space to see the pictures,
.....to give our hearts room to feel.
You may find a page that you can't tell what order to read the words in, then you find that they make sense in both directions and the ideas in your mind expand.
This is a story of survival, but in order for there to be even a concept of survival there first has to be the danger that is moved through.

It would be a good book to read with children old enough to be aware of the wider world-- it is told from the point of view of a boy, too young to be conscripted, living in a Guatemalan mountain village in 1981. In it, he discovers what his path in life will be.
I am doing my best to encourage you to read this as there are still, in this time, helicopters raining death on villages and families who are just trying to live their lives in harmony.
There is a glossary at the end to define the occasional Spanish word used. ( )

This story takes place in 1981 in Guatemala, during the time of their civil war. The story revolves around a boy named Carlos and he has decide when its time for him to grow up and become a man. So he can defend his village from the soldiers that frequently come there, but his mother tells him that she does not want him to for he is still her little boy. The book is a good read and can be graphic at times. ( )

Growing up, I was never a fan of poetry, but this being the second novel that I have read entirely made up of poems, I can say that I am a fan. I love how all of the different poems reflect on the text with the pauses and breaks in the writing. At times it was I had to re-read parts to understand what was going on, but overall this book was easy to read and engaging throughout. Carlos' story was told in a way that made readers feel that they were along on the journey with him. Not only did this keep me engaged while reading, but this feature also helps young children retain the information too. ( )

I enjoyed this book because I like how the author tells the story. The book was very touching and I actually teared up a bit. I have always loved poetry and I like that the book is written in poems. The part that struck me the most in the book was when he lost his mom. He felt like he needed to become a man now. He had no one left for him. ( )

"Caminar" is a story of a young boy named Carlos. Carlos wants to be a man but his mother is not ready for him to grow up yet. His country is in the middle of a war and there are soldiers going around interrogating people. This is a good story of a child and his journey on becoming a man. Some of the poems were hard to read the first time and had be read a few more times to fully understand. ( )
