It’s not often that an early reader turns the whole family to putty, but this simple story of a grandfather with the strength to bend does just that time after time. If you can put up with all the gushing and cooing we do in this review, you’ll be all set for the response of your little one!

It is great to hear about a book that a Spanish girl has a name different than the common name Maria. In addition, I like it that this book shows the relationship of a child and their grandparent. This is so common for children to spend time or even live with their grandparents and are faced with difficult issues with their grandparents. Sometimes these issues are uncompromisable because of the huge generation gap. Nevertheless, this book shows that love can close the generation gap.

“I like it that this book shows the relationship of a child and their grandparent”

I think this is a great idea as well since it seems now, more than ever, children are spending time with their grandparents.
