Description

Note: We are currently taking preorders for this story, which will be printed in late May, and shipped in June.

For curious young minds that have a thirst to learn about their world, look no further than my pages. I am a story that shows the value of family filled with vibrant illustrations that show what it is like to grow up in Oaxaca.

Xaneri Damián is the star of my world, who shares his real-life experiences, heart to heart. Off the pages, Xaneri is now an adult and a backstrap loom artisan who fights for the rights of LGBTIQA+ people. When you create a space for me in your home, you are helping to support their work.

With every corner of me filled with learning, I am the perfect companion to curl up with and read. On the surface, I was designed for readers ages 4-7, but deep down, I am a timeless story for humans of all ages to experience wonder, joy, and connection.
