about this item

Children's Literature. California Interest. Illustrations by Robert Trujillo. Translated from the Spanish by Cinthya Jeanette Muñoz Ramos. Bilingual Edition.I AM SAUSAL CREEK/SOY EL ARROYO SAUSAL is a bilingual children's book about the environmental and cultural history of Oakland told through the voice of a local waterway, Sausal Creek."I love this book. There are so many layers. The illustrations are deceptively gorgeous, because they are also a visual narrative about values. The story is surprisingly easygoing, because it is also a people's history and an environmentalist allegory. And most of all, I AM SAUSAL CREEK is a story about resilience and renewal, which is to say, it is story about Oakland."—Innosanto Nagara, Author/Illustrator,A is for Activist and Counting on Community"I AM SAUSAL CREEK is a story of redemption. It is the story of one creek in Oakland, California, but it could easily represent thousands of other creeks across the US. I highly recommend this book for both its historical accuracy and message of hope."—Madeleine Dunphy, Web of Life Children's Books"Environmental justice for children at its best! Reyes captures the essence of Sausal Creek and how it has flowed through time. My third graders absolutely love this book, and it was easy to incorporate into my social studies, science, and writing curriculum."—Seema Patel, Third-grade Teacher
