Read full description of the books:
The Upside Down Boy, written by Juan Felipe Herrera, with a genre of bilingual picture book, and illustrated by Elizabeth Gomez, is a story written for children seven to eight. The pictures in this story do more than the words. They are full of animals and people, but had fantasy in each picture as well. They go along with the difficult time that Juanito is dealing with. Juanito and his family move and he starts going to a new school. He feels different than everyone else and feels as if his world is turning upside down. As he gets more comfortable, he teaches his class about his culture and experiences. This is a bilingual book, in Spanish and English, and helps students connect with emotion to an experience of that nature, whether it be moving from another state to a new school, or from another country. It helps show students that even though going to a new school may be intimidating, it can turn into a positive experience in the end.

Read information about the authorJuan Felipe Herrera is the only son of Lucha Quintana and Felipe Emilio Herrera; the three were campesinos living from crop to crop on the roads of the San Joaquín Valley, Southern California and the Salinas Valley. Herrera's experiences as the child of migrant farmers have strongly shaped his work, such as the children's book Calling the Doves, which won the Ezra Jack Keats award in 1997. He is a poet, performer, writer, cartoonist, teacher, and activist who draws from real life experiences as well as years of education to inform his work. Community and art has always been part of what has driven Herrera, beginning in the mid-seventies, when he was director of the Centro Cultural de la Raza, an occupied water tank in Balboa Park converted into an arts space for the community.
Herrera’s publications include fourteen collections of poetry, prose, short stories, young adult novels and picture books for children in the last decade with twenty-one books in total.
