Quintero, Isabel

Un homenaje al amor entre un padre y su hija, y a un dinámico barrio de inmigrantes. Cuando Daisy Ramona recorre su barrio en motocicleta con su papi, ve a la gente y los lugares que siempre ha conocido. También ve a una comunidad que está cambiando rápidamente a su alrededor. Con brillantes ilustraciones y un texto lleno de sentimiento, Mi papi tiene una moto es un mensaje lleno de amor de una niña a su padre, esforzado trabajador, y a los recuerdos que todos guardamos de nuestro hogar a pesar de los cambios o la distancia.
