A stunningly illustrated book about home, community, and hope, inspired by the rebuilding of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria in September 2017.
The coquíes sing to Elena from her family's beloved mango tree—their calls to her are so familiar it's as if they're singing, “You're home, you're safe.” But suddenly, her home isn't so safe when a hurricane attempts to destroy everything Elena knows.
Over time, Elena, along with her community, begins to rebuild her home, planting seeds of hope along the way. When the sounds of the coquíes gradually return, they reflect the resilience and strength of Elena, her family, and her fellow Puerto Ricans.
