It was Danilito's first day in America. He and his parents have just made a long, exhausting move from the Caribbean to New York City. The ocean and the palm trees he is familiar with are now replaced by tall buildings and crowded streets.

Danilito is scared. He has heard that some Americans are not friendly to foreigners. In addition, he does not speak any English. His parents have worries, too. They will have to find new jobs, a new home, and adjust to the new surroundings. This was going to be their first cold winter.

Danilito's worries disappear the next morning when he wakes up and Papa leads him on a magical trip of discovery. D.H. Figueredo, in his picture book debut, brings us a gentle and uplifting story of coming to America, and Enrique O. Sanchez captures the loving images of a boy embracing his new home and finding a special bond with his family.

About the Author:

D. H. Figueredo is the author of LEE & LOW's When This World Was New, a "Choices" selection from the Cooperative Children's Book Center. A native of Cuba who has lived in New Jersey since he was a teenager, Figueredo is currently a librarian at Bloomfield College and an associate professor of literature at Montclair State University. He lives in Piscataway, New Jersey, with his wife and their children. When This World Was New is his first picture book.

Enrique O. Sanchez has illustrated numerous award winning children's books. A native of the Dominican Republic, he splits his time between his homes in Bass Harbor, Maine, and Miami, Florida.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-When his family leaves their warm Caribbean island to come to the United States, Danilito is apprehensive. Everything is new-the cold weather, the heavy clothing, the language. But the first morning in his new home brings the wondrous discovery of snow, "millions of white rose petals floating downwards," a magic that turns parked cars into polar bears and silences all sounds. Before Uncle Berto comes to drive Danilito to his new school and Pap to a factory job, father and son make snowballs and footprints together. Although the boy is still frightened, it's "not as much." The language is simple and the imagery is appropriate to the viewpoint of a young child. A few phrases of Spanish are used and translated. The rounded forms and soft colors in the acrylic paintings emphasize the gentle affection of this close-knit family. Mam 's smile, Pap 's anxious pleasure, and Danilito's joy in the snowfall are beautifully portrayed in warm tones. Danilito may worry about the unknown, but he accepts and embraces his new world so that even his greatest fear, falling on ice, becomes one more marvel, as readers see him on the last page ice skating while his smiling parents watch.
