They will read about how much Saya misses her mother and how difficult it is for them to communicate. Students can also see how Saya’s father persevered and did not give up on trying to get the story of Saya’s mother to the public through writing letters.

Most Americans have a stereotype of most gardeners, being Mexicans unlike the typical American who chooses to stay inside and watch his or hers Smartphone hour hours at a time. Mexicans work out in the heat cutting grass, racking leaves, and tending gardens.
