Product Description

Facing Fear by Karen Lynn Williams and illustrated by Sara Palacios is a powerful depiction of the everyday struggles faced by undocumented immigrants and their families. Sensitively told with expressive illustrations, this story explores the meaning of bravery and the strength of a community. Enrique can't believe his father won't let him travel to his team's big soccer tournament. Papi says going across the checkpoint is too risky. Even though Enrique is a U.S. citizen, the rest of the family isn't---and if the border police stop them, the family might be split up. The next morning Enrique decides he's going to his big game, no matter what. But the day ahead will change how he sees his dad and how he defines courage.
