Summary: Rosa and her Spanish-speaking abuela (grandmother) fly high above New York City, past the Statue of Liberty, and see the sights below. Several dozen Spanish words and phrases are woven into the fanciful picture book story, and the vibrant collage of watercolors, pastels, and cut paper pulses with colors and tiny details of city life.

Review:

This book "abuela" Reminds of all the things I went when I came to this country 3 years ago. I first read this book when I couldn't even understand english. This was the 1st book I actually read in english. This book reminded me of my culture and why it was so important to me and why I have to be proud of it, and also to respect other races, cultures and relegions. This book show me some of the things I would have to go through so one day I could undertand, speak, read and write english. Also it reminded me of what my life would get to be where I would have not seen most of my family for a really long time. All of these is why this is one of the books I consider to be the best because it showed me what was I capable of doing and where would I get if I take all my opportunities.

I like how the grandma and the little girl spend time together. It was fun to look at the pictures of the city. She loves her grandma like I love mine so good.
