Hear My Voice/Escucha mi voz: The Testimonies of Children Detained at the Southern Border of the United States
The Testimony of ChildrenA moving picture book for older children and families that introduces a difficult topic, amplifying the voices and experiences of immigrant children detained at the border between Mexico and the US. The children's actual words (from publicly available court documents) are assembled to tell one heartbreaking story, in both English and Spanish (back to back). Each spread is illustrated in striking full color by a different Latinx artist. A portion of sales will be donated to human rights organizations that work with children on the border.
