Praise

Praise for Abuela

“A book to set any child dreaming…any reader can handle it, whether familiar with Spanish or not. It’s just joyful.”-The New York Times

* “A marvelous balancing of narrative simplicity with visual intricacy…the city is transformed into a treasure trove of jewels, dazzling the eye, uplifting the spirits.”–The Horn Book (starred review) 

* “Each illustration is a masterpiece of color, line, and form that will mesmerize youngsters…The smooth text, interspersed with Spanish words and phrases, provides ample context clues…a jewel.”–Booklist (starred review)

“Dorros’s text seamlessly weaves Spanish words and phrases into the English narrative, retaining a dramatic quality rarely found in bilingual picture books”—Publisher’s Weekly 

“Should prove useful not only for collections in which there is need for ethnic diversity, but also as enrichment for intellectually curious children who are intrigued by the exploration of another language.”–School Library Journal
