TitleText

The Super Cilantro Girl: three stories of Juan Felipe Herrera, based on children’s stories by Juan Felipe Herrera, revolves around the lives of a family of migrant workers: twelve-year-old Esmeralda, her younger brother Juanito, Papi, and Mamá.  After years on the road, full of hard work and adventures, the family can finally settle down.  Now the children must attend new schools, learn a new language, and find their places in the world.  Along the way, they discover the power of words and the imagination, as well as the importance of their Mexican-American heritage and its place in California’s Central Valley.
