    1. I just finished this book with my class todayuldn't read that last sentence because I criede kids cried too. That hasn't happened to me before with a read aloud. story.

    2. I read and lesson planned this book when I student taught Spanish I to 7th and 8th graders. Any review I write will not do the book justice because it's been a long time and deserving of a reread. Definitely a great learning tool and Hispanic historical novel to read to middle school students.

I wanted to read more about the relationships Ezperanza makes and to see if anything evolves between her and Miguel. I really [...]

    4. An inspiring story of struggle, hardship, and hope, Esperanza Rising gave me and my children much to discuss. This is a great work of historical fiction for children based on the life of the author's grandmother.Esperanza, the daughter of a wealthy landowner, and her mother must leave their home in Mexico and start over as farm workers in California after the death of her father. Set in the early 1930's, this book gives you a feel for the struggles of the Great Depression as well as California H [...]

    5. A wonderful story. I listened to the audiobook but I want to read it again with a paper copy at some point.

    6. Though Esperanza comes from a privileged background, she and her mother are forced to flee Mexico after her father dies. She must work as a farm laborer (despite her upbringing and education) in southern California during the Great Depression. The characterization is lovely; they are well rounded with realistic concerns and struggles. This novel illuminates the unique plight of Mexican-American laborers during the Great Depression, including forced deportation, labor strikes, competition from th [...]

    7. This book was, I suppose, a good educational read: rather a beginner's Grapes of Wrath from a Mexican perspective. It covers very difficult issues of race, class difference, child labor and death with tact and a certain amount of gentleness.But overall after I was finished I could not help but be faced with the difficult feeling that Esparanza, while being an incredibly strong young woman and a good role model in that sense, often overlooks the immorality and unfairness of her situation in order [...]

    8. What a beautiful and beautifully simple story! I love the angles of perspective, the rich culture and largely ignored history of the Mexican repatriation, that the author explores. It's even better to learn that the author based the story largely on very true events of her grandmother's time. Esperanza is a lovely young heroine who matures so believably and admirably. I really like that she started as a pretty ignorant, hot-tempered and slightly spoiled child, so we can see that the Mexicans don [...]

    9. This book was wonderful! I started reading it a while ago, but stopped because I thought it was too sad. (I was at the part about the papayas) I just picked it up again and couldn't put it down! This was, by far, one of the best books I've ever read!

    10. I really enjoyed this story about young Esperanza, whose life is turned upside down after her father's death. Going from a privileged, comfortable life in Mexico on her father's ranch, or a difficult, hard life in California, Esperanza starts out naive and entitled, but undergoes tremendous growth and strength of character by the end of this novel. Plus, I got to learn a little about Mexican workers in California around the Depression: the racism they encountered, their efforts to gain better ri [...]

    11. This book is GREAT! I read it with school and at first to be honest I hated it! Esperanza was annoying and snobby! But in the end she was a really like able person!

    12. Wow what a powerfull story. Need I say that I spent an hour in tears as I was reading the book. Woke up with puffy eyes the next day. Unfortunately students only get to experience the Grapes of Wrath in high school. How marvelous would it be to also introduce them to Esperanza Rising, perhaps as part of an immigration unit and then have them analyze the different experiences of these two groups, the "Oakies" and the Mexican immigrants.I was so moved by the selfless act of Ramona to give up all t [...]

    13. A really great book on so many levels. There are so many connections you can make with kids while reading 'Esperanza,' but learning about the Great Depression, and Mexico, and farm workers, and how fruits and vegetables get to our tables, and California geography, are all side benefits to this Cinderella-in-reverse story that still ends up happily. It's a classic, and should be in every collection of children's books. Highly recommended.

    14. Esperanza has to unfortunately face losing everything and toiling away for net to nothing during the Great Depression, but throughout the book, her story is told with vibrancy and honesty, recalling her beloved Mexico home despite living in the grit and determination of an uncertain era.

    15. I wanted to like this book, but I struggled with liking the characters. There was not one character I really cared about. I found I cared more about the roses they were transplanting than the people who were transplanted. I did like the growth I saw in Esperanza.This story was too didactic. Munoz didn't trust her reader enough to figure out what was right; she felt she had to tell them. She also had too many plot lines going that seemed to go nowhere at all. Murdered father, greedy and mean uncl [...]

    16. A very inspirational story about the author's family and how they came to the United States to work in the early 1920's in central California.

    17. An inspirational story that will stick with you. I love Esperanza. She changed so much in the course of the book. I loved immersing myself in her world and her culture. A must read!

    18. Wow this is such a powerful story on so many levels. There are so many teachable moments that can be made with kids while reading Esperanza Rising. A few of these teachable moments deal with the Great Depression, immigration, farm working conditions, how fruits and vegetables get to our tables, racism, and many more. Another side with this story are how this story has a similar Cinderella-in-reverse plot that still ends up happily. I used to hear it's a classic when I was a kid but rereading thi [...]

    20. I listened to this as an audible book. What a beautiful voice narrator Trini Alvarado has! Her reading was a captivating performance, carrying me into the story even more than if I had read it myself.When disaster visits wealthy Esperanza Ortega and her family who live on a ranch in Mexico, she and her mama escape to California where they adjust to life as peasants and migrant workers during the Great Depression. Soulful, dramatic, lyrical, and extraordinary are the first words that come to mind [...]

    21. Read this book with my seventh grade students the first quarter and was pleasantly surprised. It was interesting to view the Great Depression through a Mexican immigrant's eyes, working on a farm in California. My students and I learned a lot.

    22. In Esperanza Rising we learn about the Ortega family who own a prosperous ranch in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Esperanza, the heroine of the story is the only child of the ranch owners. Misfortune comes to the family. Her father is killed just before she turns thirteen. Her greedy uncles inherit the ranch. One of her uncles, who wants to be a politican, offers to marry her mom, Ramona. Her love for her husband was so strong that the idea repulsed her. Esperanza and her mom are forced to leave their [...]

    23. Written in a very simplistic yet lyrical prose this is a story of a young girl named Esperanza who was born in a very affluent family in Aguascalientes, Mexico but had to emigrate to California, USA due to tragic change in her circumstances in the 1930s. With the help of family servants, Alphonso, Hortensia and their son Miguel, Esperanza and her mother Ramona came to California to work in company farm camp picking fruits. As Esperanza tries to adjust to the hardships of her camp life where she [...]

    24. A wonderful story about a thirteen-year-old Mexican girl, Esperanza, from a well-to-do family who, after the death of her father, is forced to move with her mother and family servants to southern California. They must become migrant workers picking fruits and vegetables and living in a migrant camp. Through the eyes of this privileged child, the reader learns how it feels to "come down" in life, and also how it feels to be "looked down on" by others because of one's ethnicity and social standing [...]
