Children’s Book Committee – January Pick

January 11, 2016



Mango, Abuela, and Me
by Meg Medina, illustrated by Angela Dominguez

When Mia’s grandmother comes to live with Mia and her parents, with the help of a parrot, each learns a new language to communicate. Art in ink, gauche, and marker.

Our Young Reviewer says:

Abuela reminds me of Mama Rosa, and Mama Consuelo. Mama Rosa comes every Saturday but Mama Consuelo has to get on a plane to come here. I like when Mia has a shy face in the beginning. Also I liked when they labeled things to learn English.
