My Grandparents And I - Mis Abuelos Y Yo

Summary:

Our young narrator takes us through a year with all of the things he likes to do with his grandparents, as well as the events he celebrates with his family.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The pictures are bright and the vignettes are those that kids not only will recognize, but likely celebrate with their family. For rusty speakers of either language, the bilingual narrative is most helpful.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, it just wasn't a grabber in our house.


Little Kid Reaction

S/He initially liked looking at the pictures, but consistently lost interest after a few pages.

Parent Reaction

There is less a story than a collection of abuelos-y-yo vignettes. The narrative is longer than a typical picture book, and it is nice to have both the Spanish and English text.

Type of Book:
This is a book with text in both Spanish and English.
Educational Themes:

Beyond expanding vocabulary and learning Spanish, readers can talk about special family times, love and memories.

Reading Level:
3.3
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 7
Age of child:
Read with 3½-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. There isn't much to distinguish this book as a must-have for the home library.
