The Quiet Place
When Isabel and her family move to the United States, Isabel misses all the things she left behind in Mexico, but she also experiences some wonderful new things — her first snow storm and a teacher who does not speak Spanish but has a big smile. Even better, Papa and her brother Chavo help her turn a big box into her own quiet place. As she decorates and adds more and more on to her quiet place, it is here that Isabel feels the most at home in her new country while she learns to adjust to the changes in her life.
