This picture book tells the story of one girl who constantly gets asked a simple question that doesn’t have a simple answer. When she is asked where she’s from—where she’s really from—none of her answers seems to be the right one. Unsure about how to reply, she turns to her loving Abuelo for help. He doesn’t give her the response she expects. She gets an even better one.
