Reviews - What do customers think about Los Discos De Mi Abuela/my Grandmother's Record?

Buen texto con conexiones a la musica afrocaribena  Mar 22, 2007
Me parece que este es un texto interesante por su tematica: un nino que pasa tiempo con su abuela la cual es fanatica de los precursores de musica de salsa en la ciudad de Nueva York. Las ilustraciones son de gran calidad, sin embargo el ambiente que recrean es uno generico. Se supone que la abuela sea puertorriquena, pero esto no trasluce a traves del ambiente del hogar que las ilustraciones muestran. Mas parece el apartamento de una afro-americana que el de una afroboricua. Sin embargo, a pesar de esto, la conexion de la historia con la musica afrocaribena es de gran valor.
