The Notebook Keeper: A Story of Kindness from the Border

Woman holds a notebook while standing next to a girl and her mother at the border
Illustrated by: Magdalena Mora

In this moving and stunningly-illustrated picture book, Noemi and Mama flee their home in Mexico, and head for the US border. There, they look for "The Notebook Keeper" — the person in charge of a ledger for those waiting to cross, and they add their names to the book. As the days turn into weeks, and hope dwindles, the little girl looks for kindness around her — and inside herself.
