Terry Catasús Jennings is a Cuban American writer who immigrated to the United States in 1961 after her father was jailed in Cuba by Fidel Castro’s government. She’s the author of the Definitely Dominguita series; The Women’s Liberation Movement, 1960-1990; and Pauli Murray: The Life of a Pioneering Feminist & Civil Rights Activist, a biography in verse. In The Little House of Hope (Neal Porter Books), illustrated by Raúl Colón, as Esperanza and her family settle into their new house, they all do their part to make it a home. 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. Esperanza is always the first to welcome them to her home – it’s a safe place in a new land. This is Jennings’ semi-autobiographical story of how immigrants can help others find their footing in a new country. A Spanish edition, La Casita de Esperanza, was published simultaneously.
