About this title


When twelve American students went to Cuba to meet twelve Cuban students in order to write, produce, and develop a play, the children from both countries got much more out of the meeting than they had ever anticipated.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-During the summer of 2000, a children's theater group in Cuba invited a creative arts group in Los Angeles to visit for the purpose of creating an original theatrical production, written and performed entirely by the youngsters. Twelve mentors from each group worked with them, building relationships an understanding of both cultures. Angie Espinoza, 10, was one of those children, and this book focuses on her experiences. Excursions to the mountains, seaside, and countryside provided inspiration for writing their play. After two weeks, the children returned to Havana to rehearse songs, dances, and scenes. Field trips, interspersed with the various work activities, introduced the visitors to Cuban history, politics, and daily life. Finally, the day arrived for the performance. The narrative describes the scenes and activities in an interesting manner, and flows easily from one activity to another. When Spanish words are utilized, an explanation is provided. The photos provide clear visuals of the events, and the children's faces are vibrant and animated. This book does an excellent job of documenting the experiences of these young people.
