I think the author wants me to learn from this book is that all men are treated equally and we should treat others as you would like to be treated. In this story the family are immigrants and they came from Mexico to California. We have to understand that this lifestyle of being an immigrant is not easy, especially if you don't have money.One quote from the book is "I clenched my fists and tried to hold back my tears.By the time the fire men came, the house had burned down completely.The dying flames looked like they were coming from under ground."I found this quote on page"92"
This character reminds me of myself because I'm curious and Panchito is curious about knowing English. The moment i liked this book is when they got the bags of candy on page 43. Liked it because they excepted it and did not reject it.It teaches kids to be thankful and take what they get and accept it.
