My Papi Has a Motorcycle Review

A love letter to her town and her family growing up.


Most days after his job in construction Daisy Ramona zooms around her neighborhood with her papi on his motorcycle. She sees the people and places she’s always known But she also notices the ways her community is rapidly changing

Despite the change that is coming Daisy knows the love that she feels will always be there despite whatever change may come.


A love letter to her town and her family growing up Isabel Quintero puts a focus on the real people who built the town around her. The text makes subtle nods to gentrification that children can understand. The text also focuses on the importance of the forgotten voices of the people who did the work to make towns and cities like the one Daisy lives in with a special focus on immigrants.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I'm a reader and reviewer. I focus mostly on children's books, middle grade, and young adult fiction. My favorite genre to read is fantasy. I'm also especially interested in how disability is portrayed within said media.
