Gonzalez, Rigoberto Soledad Sigh-Sighs: Soledad Suspiros.

Il. by Rosa Ibarra. ISBN0-89239-180-4. San Francisco: Children's Book Press, 2003. Unp. $16.95. This book is a wonderful depiction of a multicultural neighborhood, focusing on Soledad, a young girl who stays home alone while her parents earn a living. Soledad makes friends with neighboring families and learns many interesting ways to spend her time alone. This book would be a wonderful resource relating to students living in a culturally diverse neighborhood, or for any student who stays home alone. Because of the many Spanish translations on each page, this book also would be an asset to ESOL classrooms. Ages 8-13. Norma Medina, Bethlehem Area School District, PA
