Synopsis:
All year long, Chico's family moves up and down the state of California, from one migrant camp to another, picking fruits and vegetables. From oranges to apples they go, from onions to tomatoes, to peppers. Every September they pick grapes, and every September Chico starts at a new school where he doesn't know anyone.School is a scary place for Chico. Kids sometimes pick on him and call him names. Maybe it's because he moves so often the other kids don't get to know him, or maybe it's because he speaks Spanish sometimes. But the year Chico begins third grade turns out to be different.Chico's teacher is friendly--"the best" the other students say--and she seems to like him. While Chico finds writing stories hard, he shines in math, impressing both his teacher and his classmates. If his family stays awhile picking grapes, he may even get to go to the math fair. But then in the lunchroom, two bullies from fourth grade approach Chico and begin picking on him. Buoyed by his classroom experiences that morning, Chico gathers his courage to stand up to the bullies in the only way he knows how...

Review:
"Although a bit didactic and perhaps a bit overly optimistic, Chico's success story is cheering, and will be useful in introducing some of the issues facing migrant kids."
