Welcome to The Bronx, New York! Discover the history, landscape, cuisines, cultures, and activities unique to the Bronx in this winning picture book celebration of hometown pride.

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.

  • "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."
