Carmen Tafolla, is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate "Warrior Girl," a middle-grade novel in verse. Carmen tells us "Warrior Girl" revolves around Selena Pettis, a 12-year-old girl whose life takes a challenging turn when her father is deported, leaving her family in turmoil. The story highlights the importance of intergenerational friendships, as Selena finds solace and wisdom in her grandmother's guidance. The book explores themes of immigration, identity, poverty, and the power of human connections. Selena's journey leads her to question societal values, like materialism and the significance of friendships over material possessions. She learns the importance of celebrating diversity and fostering relationships with people of different ages and backgrounds. Carmen Tafolla also infuses history and culture into the narrative, emphasizing the shared human experiences that unite us all. The book encourages families to have meaningful conversations about these vital topics and prompts readers to consider the complexities of immigration and the humanity behind the headlines.
Tafolla's personal experiences growing up in a Mexican-American neighborhood influenced the story's themes and messages.
