About the Book

This is the Spanish-language edition of an informative, inspirational picture book biography about twins Julián and Joaquin Castro, who rose from poverty to become leaders for positive change in America.

Los gemelos Julián y Joaquín Castro son fuerzas políticas, pero su viaje comenzó en la pequeña habitación que compartían con su abuelita en San Antonio, Texas.

Desde chiquillos, aprendieron del activismo de su mama, quien quería darle una vida mejor a su familia a través del gobierno local. Su duro trabajo inspiró a los gemelos a que se involucraran en la política, y han estado trabajando al nivel local, estatal y nacional para hacer de su nación un mejor lugar para todos.

La autora premiada Monica Brown y la ilustradora Mirelle Ortega se unen para dar vida a la inspiradora historia de estos hermanos gemelos.

Also available in an English edition: Small Room, Big Dreams.
