Throughout this book a young girl named Serafina faces several obstacles in pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor. She lives in an impoverished area of Haiti and her main job is to help her mother with chores around the house. Despite the hardships that occur Serafina is still determined to reach her dreams and pushes herself. Reading this book to children could teach them to never give up on their dreams, even when times get hard, this is called perseverance and Serafina’s actions and attitude display this character trait very well.

Serafina is a young girl in Haiti who dreams, along with her best friend, of becoming a doctor one day. This road is not easy for her--her mother has a laundry list of chores for her to do, her family is about to gain a new baby, and she lives in a poor area, sometimes with very little food. She is very ambitious and determined, and by never giving up on her dream, she is finally able to go to school. Caring and loving, even though she has a lot of studying and school work to do to make her dreams a reality, Serafina does not forget about her loved ones.
I gave this story four stars because I especially admire Serafina's character and work ethic. I also enjoy certain literary choices such as whenever the author talks about falling or being alone, the words are spaced farther apart. It is easy to picture in one's head Serafina's environment and daily life in Haiti. Children, by reading this prose, may be able to more clearly understand that it is only with perseverance that their dreams may come true. Any reader may also appreciate his or her own life since he or she does not have to struggle like Serafina and her family have to in order to attain basic necessities such as water. Furthermore, the reader can more easily have sympathy for those in impoverished or developing countries and may also want to help those people have better lives. I could read this literary masterpiece every day! ( )

I did not want to put this book down! Serafina is a young girl growing up in Haiti. Her dream is to become a doctor, as she faces many obstacles she remains determined to someday fulfill her dream. This is the first verse novel that I have read, but I look forward to reading more. ( )

Serafina's Promise is a story of a young girl's desire and dream to go to school and become a doctor to help the sick and unfortunate to which she, her family, and community has their proportion of. Her experiences has shaped her rationale to the point of pure urgency and being so anxious for school as the only way of breaking free of this abject poverty. Later she sees what I consider to be incongruities in her educational pursuits. How can she go to school costing her family money that she truly believes and knows can be use for her sick brother? How could she learn the language of the oppressors, they spoke french, this is the language that was spoken when the men took grandfather away.

These and other perplexities were constantly on her mind throughout the book especially when she began going to school learning to read, write, and speak french, but her desire to become a doctor prevailed even more after the flood when she and her family lost their home and even further after the earthquake when she could not find her family amidst all the destruction and confusion. A wonderful story of the aspiration of a girl, the love and care of a father, a doctor's passion, a true and faithful friend, a wise and patient grandmother, and a mother's strength. I personally did not like the in verse writing style only because I'm not use to it; however, I understand how writing otherwise would have made the book a difficult read. Great book for 5th, and 6th graders especially when exploring other culture's norms, traditions, and societal ills. ( )
