Across the Bay
Across the Bay Written and Illustrated by Carlos Aponte 2019 Age range 4-8 Puerto Rico is on display in Across the Bay with a show of vibrant colors, as it tells the story of Carlitos a boy who lives with his mother, grandmother, and a cat. He has a happy life, but he misses his father. With only a picture of his dad he begins a journey across the bay in search for him only to find in the end where home really is-to be with the people you love. For those who have never traveled to Puerto Rico and for those who have, or who have ever called it home-everyone is in for a treat-the island comes alive in the storytelling and beautiful pictures portrayed by Aponte.
