The mother was buying all these ravishing gifts such as bikes and fancy clothes What these kids need is not gifts but LOVE from their MOTHER I couldn't believe she had put these kids through this The grandmother was the best primary guardian for these children The grandmother was loving and caring and protected the children from bad things happening to them I was very proud of Naomi for standing up for herself to her mother and the court Overall I enjoyed this story because as a reader I was able to share Naomi's fear about her future As I was reading I imagined myself as Naomi I felt the pain that she had to go through with her mother I thought about how I would feel if I didn't see my mother in seven years Naomi had real changed and grew to understand herself better Naomi and her younger brother Owen live with their Gram who is raising them in a small trailer in Lemon Tree California The children face many hurdles throughout their young lives leaving Naomi shy and unsure of herself while Owen remains positive and happy despite his physical disabilities Naomi takes to soap carving as a hobby and a way of expressing herself Unexpectedly their mom re enters their lives along with a new boyfriend and his younger daughter At first Naomi and Owen are excited until mom shows signs of alcohol use and instability Naomi suspects ulterior motives when mom plans to take Naomi to Las Vegas to live while leaving Owen behind Refusing to let this happen Gram packs up the trailer and the children and sets off to Mexico to find the their father Once Naomi meets her father who is also a carver she begins to find her identity and discover who she really is inside Naomi’s story is one of courage as she struggles to find her voice when she needs it most This touching tale is warm inspiring and sprinkled with Mexican culture In classrooms it could be used as a choice for literature circles or to enrich the study of Mexican culture and heritage It is appropriate for grades 4 through 7 Becoming Naomi Leon review One of her favorite sayings was that the good and the bad of any situation were sometimes the same My thoughts dived into a jumble in the middle of my mind wrestled around until they were wadded into a fisted knot and attached themselves to my brain like a burr matted in a long haired dog I always thought the biggest problem in my life was my name Naomi Soledad Leon Outlaw but little did I know that it was the least of my troubles or that someday I would live up to it  When Naomi was 4 and her brother was 1 their mother left them with their grandmother Seven years later the mother Skyla shows up on their doorstep wanting to get to know her children But she has other motives A chain of events sends Naomi Owen and Gram on a trip to Mexico where Naomi discovers about her Mexican heritage and finds something unexpected This is a lovely story The characters are likable I enjoyed reading about Naomi's journey and how she reasoned things out in her head Her devotion to her brother is admirable She doesn't let anyone stop her when she needs something  The book is culturally authentic and contains many examples of Spanish words and Mexican culture Readers especially girls will enjoy reading about Naomi's determination and her adventures The ending doesn't take the easy way out and is pretty realistic as opposed to being too perfect and happy    Becoming Naomi Leon is about a young girl named Naomi who lived a pretty normal life until her mother comes and Naomi finds herself on a journey to try to keep her family together The author of this fictional story is Pam Munoz Ryan This book is is full of adventure and always keeps you on your toes The theme of this story is to never give and keep tryingThis book is told in 3rd person and the genre is realistic fictionI like Becoming Naomi Leon because it's very adventurous and fun The plot of this story is that Naomi and her little brother Owen have lived with their great grandmother for seven years until her mother shows up wanting take Naomi back with her back with her I think this book book is for younger audiences from 10 14 years oldBecoming Naomi Leon makes me realize how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family The book brings up memories from the book series called the The Series of Unfortunate Events because of the fight between adults for children This book has change my point of view that mothers' should always gain custody of their childrenI like this book because it is very realistic in the way that it could happen to anyone and probably already has The thing I don't like about this book is that it is very complicated and hard to keep up with going on in the story I recommend this book because it gives you a sense of reality and helps you appreciate what you have This book was very I love the love they share I liked the book how she changed her name and how it was nice of her mom returning back for Naoimi and buying her clothes and doing braids on her hair How her mom bought Owen a byicle and her mom wanted to take Naoimi to Las Vegas so that she can take care of Clive's daughter Naomi going to Oaxa to go find her dad she going to El Mercadoa pinaple lolipop La Posadagoing to Aunt Teresa's housedoing the carving finding his dad and meeting him for the first time and finding him in the Posada and doing the carving for the Posada so they could win and they won 2 place The court and her grandmother staying with Naoimi and Owen and Naoimi telling the Judge all what Skyla did to her I really loved this book The dialogue was great especially the uirky way that Gram speaks I loved Naomi's character and the closeness of her and her brother a diagnosed funny looking kid The story was good although a little too neatly solved I do feel inspired by Naomi the Lion's ability to stand up and tell her story so that her and her brother and her Gram can stay together when her messed up mom tries to take her away The characters and the setting made the novel great This was a really good read I loved Naomi as a character and following her through her struggles with her family My favorite uote from the book is How many others were walking around and not even knowing that someone far away cared for them? Imagine all that love floating in the air waiting to land on someone's lifeSENSITIVITY WARNING Maybe some language some abuse mostly verbal
