A little girl basks in the everyday love of her great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother in this bilingual (English and Spanish) and multigenerational picture book celebration.
“A vibrantly illustrated, bilingual picture book that captures the rhythms of life.”— Kirkus Reviews
Illustrated by “Corazones Valientes,” six women artists from Costa Rica working together, this book celebrates four generations of women in one family. From great-grandmother to grandmother to mother to daughter, each shows love in a traditional way—in cooking tortillas, doing laundry, and giving flowers—and through increasingly modern methods as the years pass. But one thing never changes: the lullaby they sing, and the love they all have for one another. Written in both English and Spanish, this is a tribute to families and everyday love. “The timeless quality of maternal love is evident throughout.”—School Library Journal
