When Esperanza and her family arrive in the United States from Cuba, they rent a little house, una casita. It may be small, but they soon prove that there’s room enough to share with a whole community. When other immigrant families need a place to stay, it seems only natural for the family in la casita to help. Together they turn the house into a place where other new immigrants can help one another and offer a safe place in a new land.

Terry Catasús Jennings and her family emigrated from Cuba in 1961. The Little House of Hope is inspired by her own experience. She is the author of the Definitely Dominguita chapter book series; The Women’s Liberation Movement, 1960-1990; and Pauli Murray: The Life of a Pioneering Feminist and Civil Rights Activist. Terry lives with her husband in Northern Virginia.

Raúl Colón is the recipient of the 2021 Eric Carle Honor. He is the author and illustrator of many picture books, including Draw!, an ALA Notable Book and recipient of the International Latino Book Award; Jill Biden’s Don’t Forget, God Bless OurTroops; Imagine!, an ALA Notable Book, a New York Public Library Best Book for Kids, and a Bookpage Best Book; Susanna Reich’s José! Born to Dance; and Angela’s Christmas by Frank McCourt. He lived in Puerto Rico as a young boy and now resides in New City, New York, with his family.
