“I finally got my copy of Two Grandmas – it’s wonderful! Congratulations! I will give it to our granddaughter Christina for Christmas. She has some Spanish but not a lot so it will encourage her – and I’ll show her our Panama show at the same time. Much love, Linda & George”.
“This book has several dimensions. First children learn to read in English and Spanish. Then the author shows the contrast of two different cultures through concepts and activities children usually experience in their young lives. Third, the author has taken great care to show the value of appreciating two cultures. Lastly, on the back of the book there are 10 pages totally dedicated to show vocabulary in different categories, illustrations, and languages. The drawings are catching, colorful, and simple to understand. This is a wonderful book to share not only with children but with those who are learning to speak, read, and write English and/or Spanish and are embracing a new culture. Beautiful book!”
