There's only one place where you can see bodegas and businesses bustling on every street, taste the most delicious empanadas in the world, smell the salty sea air of Pelham Bay, and pet horses at the Bronx Equestrian Center. From sunrise to sunset, Santiago and Mami have many treasures to enjoy in their neighborhood on a beautiful Saturday, including colorful birds on the Siwanoy Trail and fresh cannolis on Arthur Avenue. This energetic and joyful family story offers both a journey through and a love letter to this special borough. The Bronx Is My Home is a dynamic read-aloud and a heartfelt invitation to all, for readers of My Papi Has a Motorcycle and Saturday.
"The fun in spending the day with someone you love in the place you call home will resonate with all readers. An ode to the Bronx that natives and tourists alike will cherish, this is a great choice for picture book shelves."Booklist
"An Afro–Puerto Rican child explores the Bronx.Holt’s animation-style illustrations lend energy to the sweet relationships and diverse communities depicted. A warm introduction to a culturally rich borough."Kirkus Reviews
