Title: My Abuelita*

Contributors: Tony Johnston & Yuyi Morales

Format: Hardcover

Age Range: Ages 4 to 7, Grades P to 3

Abuelita, who uses words that are "as wild as blossoms blooming," is not only an amazing grandmother, but she also has a very important job--as a storyteller.

Winner of a 2010 Pura Belpre Illustrator Honor!

Abuelita’s hair is the color of salt. Her face is as crinkled as a dried chile. She booms out words as wild as blossoms blooming. She stuffs her carcacha—her jalopy—with all the things she needs: a plumed snake, a castle, a skeleton, and more. Her grandson knows he has the most amazing grandmother ever—with a very important job. What does Abuelita do? With her booming voice and wonderful props, Abuelita is a storyteller. Next to being a grandmother, that may be the most important job of all.

Sprinkled with Spanish and infused with love, My Abuelita is a glorious celebration of family, imagination, and the power of story.
