Hello Michelle and Sharon.
I am excited to be participating in this year’s Picture Book Party and appreciate the opportunity to describe to you a second picture book.
ABU & NANA is the bilingual story of a little boy and his two grandmothers. One is from Puerto Rico and the other is from America. They both love him in the same ways but with different words.
My son-in-law's family is from Puerto Rico and I encourage my grandson and his love of what he refers to as “spanich.” Thank you for your time. I truly appreciate it.
