Two White Rabbits

(3) K-3 Translated by Elisa Amado. Illustrated by Rafael Yockteng. A girl and her father travel by foot, by raft, and by train. As they travel, the girl counts the things she sees: "I count the people who live by the train tracks." Originally published in Spanish, this quiet picture book highlights the experience of a child refugee or immigrant; Yockteng's contemplative graphic illustrations clearly depict the pain, frustration, and boredom of the journey.
