From Follett

Translated from the Spanish. "The little girl in this story is traveling with her father, but doesn't know where they are going. She counts the animals by the road, the clouds in the sky, the stars. Sometimes she sees soldiers. Sometimes they are forced to stop because her father has to earn more money before they can continue their journey"--Publisher.

Full-Text Reviews
Booklist (October 1, 2015 (Vol. 112, No. 3))
Grades K-2. The pace is fittingly slow in this quiet immigration story. Short sentences, interrupted by the silence of wordless two-page spreads, seem to match the steady tread of the girl and her father as they “travel” on foot, by raft, and atop trains, moving day and night through deserts and fields. Traveling, we quickly learn, is a euphemism for the journey of immigration, but it only thinly disguises the arduous nature of this pair’s trek. Details in the illustrations belie the neutrality of the text. The girl amuses herself by counting things she sees along the way, and it seems this is a journey she has taken before. She does not know where they are going, and no one will tell her. Older readers will appreciate the allegory, and younger ones the simplicity of this spare immigration tale. The digital illustrations use saturated earth tones to render these anonymous people beautifully real. Though they have no names or a place to call home, there is no doubt that they count.
