ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
I compagni di Lola vengono tutti da paesi lontani. Quando la maestra chiede alla classe di disegnare la propria terra d'origine, i bambini sono entusiasti: c'è chi vuole disegnare una piramide, chi un lungo corso d'acqua, chi addirittura una mangusta! Solo Lola è triste: era troppo piccola quando ha lasciato l'Isola, e non ne ha memoria. Grazie ai suoi amici e alla sua famiglia, però, Lola vivrà un viaggio straordinario in un posto pieno di colori, sapori, musica e perfino mostri. Perché, come dice la sua abuela, se non ricordi un luogo, non significa che quel luogo non sia dentro di te.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Every kid in Lola’s school was from somewhere else. Hers was a school of faraway places. So when Lola’s teacher asks the students to draw a picture of where their families immigrated from, all the kids are excited. Except Lola. She can’t remember The Island—she left when she was just a baby. But with the help of her family and friends, and their memories—joyous, fantastical, heartbreaking, and frightening—Lola’s imagination takes her on an extraordinary journey back to The Island.  As she draws closer to the heart of her family’s story, Lola comes to understand the truth of her abuela’s words: “Just because you don’t remember a place doesn’t mean it’s not in you.” Gloriously illustrated and lyrically written, Islandborn is a celebration of creativity, diversity, and our imagination’s boundless ability to connect us—to our families, to our past and to ourselves.
