2019 Nerdies Fiction Picture Book Award Winner | Silver Medalist for Bank Street College of Education's Best Spanish Language Picture Books of the Year | Named one of Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2019 |A Mighty Girl's 2019 Book of the Year | Named one of New York Public Library's Best Books for Kids 2019  "Lyrical language and luminous illustrations. An ideal vehicle for readers to ponder and discuss their own identities." --Kirkus (starred review) "An enchanted, hand-in-hand odyssey [and] opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the many, many backgrounds, roots, histories, of those who live in these United States." --Shelf Awareness (starred review) "A much-needed title that is a first purchase for libraries and classrooms." --School Library Journal "This touching book addresses a ubiquitous question for children of color, and in the end, the closeness between the girl and Abuelo shows that no matter the questions, she knows exactly where she's from." --Booklist "Although the book begins as a gentle riposte to narrow cultural and ethnic categorizations, its conclusion reaches out to all readers, evoking both heritage and the human family." --Publishers Weekly This resonant picture book tells the story of one girl who constantly gets asked a simple question that doesn't have a simple answer. A great conversation starter in the home or classroom--a book to share, in the spirit of I Am Enough by Grace Byers and Keturah A. Bobo. When a girl is asked where she's from--where she's really from--none of her answers seems to be the right one. Unsure about how to reply, she turns to her loving abuelo for help. He doesn't give her the response she expects. She gets an even better one. Where am I from? You're from hurricanes and dark storms, and a tiny singing frog that calls the island people home when the sun goes to sleep.... With themes of self-acceptance, identity, and home, this powerful, lyrical picture book will resonate with readers young and old, from all backgrounds and of all colors--especially anyone who ever felt that they don't belong. A Spanish-language edition, ¿De dónde eres?, is also available.… (més)

Finding out about where she comes from and family.
  nicolecoronel | Nov 16, 2021 |
"After being repeatedly asked variations on “Where are you from?” the narrator finds out that “I’m from here, from today, same as everyone else,” is not an answer that will satisfy those asking. They want to know “where are you really from.”

The child, who has light-brown skin and hair worn in two afro-puffs, turns to Abuelo for help. He in turn “looks inside his heart for an answer.” Lyrical language and luminous illustrations convey his thoughtful response. “You’re from the gaucho, brave and strong.…But you’re also from the warm, blue oceans the copper warriors tried to tame…where our ancestors built a home for all, even when they were in chains because of the color of their skin.” By pointing out the child’s Argentinean and Puerto Rican cultural heritage as well as mixed racial makeup, Abuelo’s answer addresses the multilayered and varied possibilities of a Latinx identity. Ultimately, Abuelo points out, the questioning child comes from his love and that of all those who came before. The question of where someone is “really” from, in the United States, is too often understood as meaning: You look different; you must be from somewhere else. In this case, the illustrations portray a very diverse group of children and adults posing that very question, demonstrating the particular frustrations often experienced by people of mixed race.

An ideal vehicle for readers to ponder and discuss their own identities. (Picture book. 4-8)" A Kirkus Starred Review, www.kirkusreviews.com

This sweet picture book would be a great easy introduction to how to talk about diversity with younger students. The unnamed young character is asked by other kids "where are you really from?" and she goes to ask her Abuelo. He tells her about all of the far off places in her history, noting a characteristic that could be a headscarf or a thunderstorm. A teacher might talk about a particular page, how her Abuelo talks about both the southern and northern hemispheres. He finishes with telling her that she's from the love of all of the people who dreamed of her.

A great jumping off point to talk about differences and similarities of people, the different places people live and the same love and care of families.

This is sweet picture book about a little girl who keeps getting asked where is she from. She asks her grandfather where she is from and he tells her she's from the river that feeds the land, from the mountains, and the ocean. He continues on telling her different places she from. She wants to know what place she is from. When he answers that he tells her she's from love, his love and all the love of her ancestors. This book is beautifully illustrated. The message is sweet and simple. When you read it out loud, it sounds like poetry. I think this book will resonate with many children and adults. ( )

This book is a great book to read to students about "where they come from". In the book they talk about where you come from doesn't have to always mean where you were born and live but that where do you and your cultures come from. Such as ancestry. This young girl learns that from her grandpa who helps show and teaches her where she comes from.
