Description



About the Book



While riding on a bus with her grandmother, a little girl imagines that they are carried up into the sky and fly over the sights of New York City.



Book Synopsis



Dive into Spanish text and fly high over beautiful New York City with Rosalba and her grandmother in Arthur Dorros' enchanting Abuela. Winner of the Parents' Choice Award.

-Tantos pájaros- dice Rosalva mientras les dan de comer-. ¿Y qué tal si los pájaros me alzaran y me llevaran volando por encima del parque? ¿Qué pasaría si yo volara?

¡Y claro que ella vuela! Y lleva consiguo a su abuela y nos narra, en español sazonado con algunas frases en inglés, este maravilloso viaje. Mucho de los lugares que visitan le recuerdan a la abuela el momento de su llegada a este país.

Con su energía y belleza, las ilustraciones tipo collage transforman la ciudad de Nueva York en un tesoro para los lectores al igual que para Rosalba y Abuela. Su aventura es un canto al poder del amor y al orgullo familiar entre una niña y su abuela.


Dorros's text seamlessly weaves Spanish words and phrases into the English narrative, retaining a dramatic quality rarely found in bilingual picture books--Publisher's Weekly

También disponible en una edición Inglés (ISBN: 978-0-14-056225-5)

About the Author



Arthur Dorros (arthurdorros.com) vivió en Nueva York en donde disfrutaba de observar la ciudad desde el tejado de su edificio. Le fascina el gran número de personas en Estados Unidos que conservan fuertes lazos con sus orígenes étnicos, pues tienan la riqueza de dos culturas y de dos lenguas. El Sr. Dorros es el autor de Tonight Is Carnaval (en español bajo el título de Por Fin es Carnaval) y de otros aclamados libros para niños, entre ellos Alligator Shoes, seleccionado por Reading Rainbow. Actualmente vive en Seattle, Washington.

Elisa Kleven
es la autora e ilustradora de Ernst. También ilustró B Is for Bethlehem de Isabel Wilner, considerado como sobresaliente, según la reseña de Booklist por sus atractivas y originales ilustraciones con su vitalidad folclórica y su estilo juvenil. La Sra. Kleven vive en Albany, California.
