About the Book
“With its emotional nuance and understated, observant narration—especially where Abuela’s inner state is concerned—Medina’s lovely story has the feel of a novella.”
“Pura Belpré Award winner Medina and Pura Belpré honoree Dominguez have created a poignant tale of intergenerational connection, transition, and patience. The language and vivid illustrations (a colorful blend of ink, gouache, and marker) are infused with warmth and expression, perfectly complementing the story’s tone. Abuela’s adjustment to her new home is sensitively portrayed as she and Mia bond over their different cultures and shared heritage.”
