Carlos knows that when the soldiers arrive with warnings about the Communist rebels, it is time to be a man and defend the village, keep everyone safe. But Mama tells him not yet -- he's still her quiet moonfaced boy. The soldiers laugh at the villagers, and before they move on, a neighbor is found dangling from a tree, a sign on his neck: Communist. Mama tells Carlos to run and hide, then try to find her ... Numb and alone, he must join a band of guerillas as they trek to the top of the mountain where Carlos's abuela lives. Will he be in time, and brave enough, to warn them about the soldiers? What will he do then? A novel in verse inspired by actual events during Guatemala's civil war, Caminar is the moving story of a boy who loses nearly everything before discovering who he really is.--Amazon.… (mere)

middlegrade fiction in verse (war/Guatemala 1981). I would've liked this better if I could force myself to slow down, pace out each poem, but I generally don't care for poems and skim over them. These I could tell were well-written (compared to other novels written in verse) and I got a good sense of Carlos' feelings, and all that was going on around him. ( )

This is a story that looks like a poem. If you are a person who doesn't read poems--don't worry--It is really a story.
The author just uses the pattern of the words on the page
.....to give our mind the space to see the pictures,
.....to give our hearts room to feel.
You may find a page that you can't tell what order to read the words in, then you find that they make sense in both directions and the ideas in your mind expand.
This is a story of survival, but in order for there to be even a concept of survival there first has to be the danger that is moved through.

It would be a good book to read with children old enough to be aware of the wider world-- it is told from the point of view of a boy, too young to be conscripted, living in a Guatemalan mountain village in 1981. In it, he discovers what his path in life will be.
I am doing my best to encourage you to read this as there are still, in this time, helicopters raining death on villages and families who are just trying to live their lives in harmony.
There is a glossary at the end to define the occasional Spanish word used. ( )

In my opinion this is a great book. First, I liked the style. Caminar is a poetic historical fiction book that took place in the 1980’s during the war in Guatemala. Carlos is a young village boy who enjoys playing like other children his age, but as war is nearing his village, he wonders about the army. His mother doesn’t want him to join any side, but instead she tells him to run, hide, go to his grandmother’s village and then look for her. Carlos obeys his mother but doubts his decision. The way the words are organized, are written in ways where the words speak to you. For example,
“the thuds
Stopped
The hisses
Gone
The sound of blades
Faded
I blinked my eyes
Looked around
Smoke thick
Trees thick
I saw
No one”
The spaces in between give enough time for the words to be processed and one can imagine and feel exactly what was happening. Second, I liked the theme. I’ve read many books that have strong Hispanic origins, but never had I read a book about a war from a Hispanic country. Not many people are aware of the different wars from other countries. The main purpose of this book was to shine light on to the people from Guatemala who survived the war in the 1980’s. Many people died, but their voices and stories still linger. ( )

This story takes place in 1981 in Guatemala, during the time of their civil war. The story revolves around a boy named Carlos and he has decide when its time for him to grow up and become a man. So he can defend his village from the soldiers that frequently come there, but his mother tells him that she does not want him to for he is still her little boy. The book is a good read and can be graphic at times. ( )

Growing up, I was never a fan of poetry, but this being the second novel that I have read entirely made up of poems, I can say that I am a fan. I love how all of the different poems reflect on the text with the pauses and breaks in the writing. At times it was I had to re-read parts to understand what was going on, but overall this book was easy to read and engaging throughout. Carlos' story was told in a way that made readers feel that they were along on the journey with him. Not only did this keep me engaged while reading, but this feature also helps young children retain the information too. ( )
