  • Dear Emma, Thank you for coming to Ovid to share your childhood. It was a joy to meet you...as if we had known each other all these years. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book. I hadn't thought of the houses in the dirt for years. I am amazed at what you remembered about Ovid. Thank you for the tea set, you are amazing!!! Friends forever, Carol Watson Gillham

    - …thoroughly enjoyed reading your book.
  • Field Mice: Memoirs of a Migrant Child is a must read. It serves as a reminder of the hellish work that our families of migrant workers of past and present have endured and continue to do so. It is educational and informative about a way of life of people who help feed the world, but at times themselves go to bed hungry. “Field Mice” will make you laugh, be sad, but will inspire you to try harder to succeed in life and not to give up on your goals and dreams, to realize the importance of a good education, and to always remember and believe, “QUE SI SE PUEDE!” (“IT CAN BE DONE!”) Finally, like all good things in life, you hate to get to the end of it! – José María DeLeón Hernández Little Joe Y La Familia

  • "Field Mice: Memoirs of a Migrant Child" has been an inspiring novel to read by someone who has never been a migrant worker but has worked with Migrant families and students for 11 years. Emma Gonzalez, in my opinion, is a courageous and gifted author who has been able to keep the audience's attention in a spellbound captivating way by sharing her true life experiences. This book is so unique given the fact that there is no other book in print currently that is able to speak to the horrific experience our migrant workers have to endure. Emma has a beautiful way of expressing herself in writing ...(To Read more of this review click SEE MORE) Linda Aranda, M. Ed.
