Children’s Book Committee – January Pick

January 11, 2016

mango-abuela-me

 

Mango, Abuela, and Me
by Meg Medina, illustrated by Angela Dominguez
(Candlewick)

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.

– Manu, 5, Bronx, NY
