Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. This ode to family depicts the special influence of a young boy's grandparents in his life. His voice rings as he catalogs the various ways his grandparents impact him. Through gentle verse, Caraballo strings the joys of this quiet relationship: weekends spent throwing parties in the kitchen with delectable desserts, strolls to the museums and historic sites, and sprinting through the spray of a water hose in the backyard. Set in Puerto Rico, the book, too, pays homage to a unique childhood on the island. Caraballo introduces the reader, aged 3 to 7, to a strong grandparent and grandchild relationship. Complemented by vibrant illustrations, this is a book to share with a child on a very special day.
