Description

Julia va a pasar el verano en casa de su abuela –será su primera vez lejos de papá y mamá. En la casa de la abuela, acurrucada en las faldas de una montaña a las afueras de la Ciudad de México, la brisa es dulce como el jazmín y una buganvilla rosada trepa por las paredes de la casita. Este lugar tiene algo especial, piensa Julia, y la abuela, definitivamente, tiene algo de especial también. Algo así como la forma en que parece ver el futuro o poder viajar en el tiempo. Cuando papá y mamá llegan para llevarse a Julia de vuelta a casa, traen una sorpresa con ellos, y puede que necesiten la ayuda de Julia. Sí, la abuela tiene algo… y tal vez Julia haya aprendido también algunas cosas de la abuela.

Con las emotivas ilustraciones de Tania de Regil, que incluyen poemas de su bisabuelo escritos a mano por su abuela, Un verano especial con la abuela explora con un estilo tierno y juguetón la magia de la sabiduría y el amor entre generaciones.

At Grandma’s house, where Julia is staying without her parents for the first time, the breeze is sweet like jasmine. Mornings begin with sugared bread, and the most magnificent hot chocolate cures all homesickness. There’s something about this place . . . and about Grandma. Something in the way she can tell when Julia has been quietly picking limes from the garden. How she can see the future—and knows when Julia is about to fall off her bike. How she seems to have secrets that she writes by moonlight in her notebook. And how she can journey back in time through the stories she tells. In the room where Julia’s mother grew up, her grandmother holds her in a warm embrace—an embrace that Julia will pass on to her family when her parents arrive with her new baby brother. With Tania de Regil’s heartfelt illustrations, incorporating poems by her great-grandfather that were handwritten by her grandmother, Something About Grandma offers a tender and playful exploration of the magic of intergenerational love and wisdom. On a first solo visit with her grandmother outside Mexico City, a young girl discovers what makes Grandma so special in this enchanting and personal picture book.
