Blue skies for Lupe

Blue skies for Lupe is based on the real-life adventures of a Mexican immigrant born with physical disabilities. "Lupe and her mother cross the desert at night and arrive in California where their new life begins." From listening to her mother sing while she works in the fields to attending school where Lupe uses a wheelchair, we get a glimpse of what life is like for a little girl and the community that supports her. An update on the adult Lupe's accomplishments and future plans, as well as a short glossary of Spanish-language vocabulary words featured in the story are also included.
