Ideal for reading aloud in either (or both) languages. Sep 7, 2007
Grandma's Ready / La Abuelita Ya Esta Lista is a bilingual English/Spanish softcover picturebook about a mother who is about to become a new grandmother. Such a momentous forthcoming event requires preparation - what does an impending grandmother have to do to get ready? "Find the old toys and clean them like new. / Your mom and dad used them when they were small too. / A special place for when it's time to sleep. / And a space for when you start to creep." Simple illustrations colored in a style reminiscent of crayon add a playful touch to this picturebook ideal for reading aloud in either (or both) languages.
a RELATIVE book, in more ways than one Jun 23, 2007
When my husband and I wanted to tell our family that we were pregnant, we wanted to do it in a way that would be remembered. Therefore, we went searching for books that were about children and their various relatives. Grandma's Ready was a great find. We enjoyed the illustrations; the story line reminds us of the days we spent with our grandparents. It was also nice that the story and illustrations are bilingual and multicultural. I am hoping that the author will continue with a possible series, which may include grandpas, aunts, and uncles.
Great gift for a soon to be Grandma Apr 30, 2007
This is a wonderful book from first time author Sharon Chess. The story and illustrations are beautiful. It's a great gift idea for a soon to be Grandma. Will be a treasured story that will be passed on from grandchild to grandchild. Found it very interesting that it was in English and Spanish on each page. For a multilingual family this is a great idea. Why don't more authors do this? Highly recommended.
