Areli is a dreamer : a true story / by Areli Morales, a DACA recipient ; illustrations by Luisa Uribe.

Morales, Areli, (author,, author.). Uribe, Luisa, (illustrator.). Findaway World, LLC, (publisher.).

Summary:

"In the first picture book written by a DACA Dreamer, Areli Morales tells her own powerful and vibrant immigration story. When Areli was just a baby, her mama and papa moved from Mexico to New York with her brother, Alex, to make a better life for the family-and when she was in kindergarten, they sent for her, too. Everything in New York was different. Gone were the Saturdays at Abuela's house, filled with cousins and sunshine. Instead, things were busy and fast and noisy. Areli's limited English came out wrong, and schoolmates accused her of being illegal. But with time, America became her home. And she saw it as a land of opportunity, where millions of immigrants who came before her paved their own paths. She knew she would, too. This is a moving story-one that resonates with millions of immigrants who make up the fabric of our country-about one girl living in two worlds, a girl whose DACA application was eventually approved and who is now living her American dream."
