DEVOLVER AL REMITENTE/ RETURN TO SENDER

by | Read by Olivia Preciado, Ozzie Rodriguez

Spanish Audio Ages 10+ • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Ozzie Rodriguez narra esta historia sobre la inmigración con toda la compasión que merece. En el estado de Vermont, un niño de once años, Tyler, está preocupado porque sus padres rompen la ley por dar trabajo a obreros sin papeles. ¨Son ángeles mexicanos,¨ le dice su madre. Sin ellos la familia de Tyler perdería su granja de ganado lechero. La yuxtaposición de la narración provee Olivia Preciado con la oportunidad de actuar con mucho afecto la voz joven de Mari, la mayor de tres hermanas que trabajan en la granja. A través de cartas a casa y notas en su diario, ella expresa el conflicto que observa entre la necesidad de tener trabajo de su propia familia y la de la gente que les da trabajo ilegalmente. Rodriguez y Preciado son perfectamente emparejados con sus habilidades bilingües, y entre los dos, se trasmiten diestramente los personajes diversos y la historia fascinante de Julia Álvarez.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Ozzie Rodriguez narrates a story about immigration with the compassion it deserves. In Vermont, 11-year-old Tyler is troubled that his parents violate the law by hiring undocumented Mexican workers. “They are Mexican angels,” his mother tells him; without them Tyler’s family would lose their dairy farm. In a juxtaposed narrative, Olivia Preciado delivers the intelligent, youthful voice of Mari, the oldest of three sisters whose family works on the farm. In letters home and in her journal she express the conflict she observes between her family’s need to work and the people who illegally hire them. Rodriguez and Preciado are perfectly paired, and with their bilingual language skills they deftly convey Julia Alvarez’s diverse characters and compelling story.
