In a good world, I will be on vacation when you read this post. We rent a cottage near Point Pelee National Park, which is a gorgeous part of Canada. We are able to buy the most incredible produce there because of all the farms nearby, but not until I saw Migrant, written by Maxine Trottier and illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault, did I really think about the Mexican temporary workers who make this bounty possible. It’s something we should all think about.
