KIRKUS REVIEW

An agreeable ""reader"" for second and third graders, in a story about a poor, kind, hard-working Mexican family who cross the border into the United States and become ""very good neighbors"". Suspense centers around their ability to build a home out of scrap materials and to get permission to stay on the land near the railroad. There's a good sense of loyalty and family warmth, but Miss Eberle once again errs a bit on the saccharine side. Particular value for the southwest, where our Mexican neighbors are an important factor.
