Publisher Description:
El intenso relato del viaje de una familia a trav s de los campos de California viviendo una vida en constante movimiento, Cajas de cart n es el primer libro en la serie ganador del Honor Pura Belpre de Francisco Jim nez.

Desde campos de fresa a campos de algod n, y de campamentos a cobertizos de un ambiente. Narrada por un joven que anhela estudiar y obtener el derecho de elegir un hogar, esta es una historia de supervivencia, fe y esperanza. Un viaje que abrir el coraz n y la mente de los lectores.

A powerful account of a family's journey to the fields of California--to a life of constant moving, from strawberry fields to cotton fields, from tent cities to one-room shacks. Seen through the eyes of a boy who longs for an education and the right to call one place home, this is a story of survival, faith, and hope. It is a journey that will open readers' hearts and minds, and the first volume in a Pura Belpre award-winning series.
