Mamá the Alien / Mamá la extraterrestre

Join author René Colato Laínez and illustrator Laura Lacámara who will be signing copies of their award-winning picture book about immigration, Mamá the Alien/ Mamá la extraterrestre, published by Lee & Low Books. 

When Mamá’s purse falls on the floor, Sofia gets a peek at Mamá’s old Resident Alien card and comes to the conclusion that Mamá might be an alien from outer space. Sofia heads to the library to learn more about aliens. Some are small and some are tall. Some have four fingers on each hand and some have large, round eyes. Their skin can be gray or blue or green. But Mamá looks like a human mother! Could she really be an alien?

Filled with imagination and humor, this book is a sweet and timely celebration of family, no matter where that family comes from.
