My Abuelita

This warm story follows a young boy who lives with his Abuelita and her cat Frida Kahlo. Going through a day of getting ready with Abuelita for work, the dialogue between a boy and his grandma, mixes fun English and Spanish words easily for children to recognize, and uplifts the beauty of being bilingual. A surprise closes the story as Abuelita's day of work ends as she begins her "job," but you will have to read it to discover the secret...
