Abuelita: Full of Life is a sweet bilingual story of Jose's family and the grandmother who comes to live with them. Since Abuelita (grandmother) came to live with Jose's family, things have changed. She moves into Jose's bedroom, plants a backyard garden, cooks delectable food, reads the children stories and plays with Jose and his sister. Many will feel the yearning of what was and is no more.

The story is really beautiful in both the English and the Spanish. I love the repetition of the text passage about the boys abuelita, and I absolutely loved how the author used opposites for comparison of her traits. The pictures and colors just make the book all that much better. Library descriptions.

A. Costales has lived in Spain, Mexico, Thailand, and India, but recently returned to the United States with her family, where she is a Spanish teacher. They inspected tadpoles, looked for counterfeit money, planned pet parades, and climbed Clara’s oak tree. One day they had a fight over magic potion and A. Costales had to learn how to apologize to her super best friend.

RU. A boy has a good time attending a fair with his grandmother in San Luis de La Paz, Mexico, as she teaches him Spanish words and phrases and he teaches her English.

Abuelita Full of Life offers the loving message of what generations and cultures can learn from each other. A teacher can read this book if there are many students in the class who speak Spanish and are still learning English. The story begins in the picture book when Jose’s Grandmother from Mexico moves in with his family. Through beautifully illustrated pages we learn about the "gifts" her presence brings to the everyday lives of Jose and his family. The reading wasn't too difficult and the story also has English on one side of the page so the teacher can read to the different speakers both at the same time.

This universally heart-warming story featuring 'old' and 'young' main characters, female and male. While the exact the scenarios in the story may not be universal, the sentiments created by the book's events are universal. I speak and read both Spanish and English and the translations are good. Recommend this to all who enjoy good children's literature.

The book was a gift for my grandson who lives in a different state. He is 6 and an avid reader. The bilingual books are new to him but a welcome challenge as he has been reading since age 3. He wants more!

This book is considered one of my favorites now! I am happy to own a copy of this beautiful story! Thank you very much!

While I like the simplicity of the message of this book, I wonder how many modern Latina Abuelita's would identify with the one portrayed here. She is stereotypical and in no way resembles my 86 year old mother in law, who moved in with us and was the reason I purchased this book for my young daughters.

Abuelita: Full of Life is a sweet bilingual story of Jose's family and the grandmother who comes to live with them.

Since Abuelita (grandmother) came to live with Jose's family, things have changed. She moves into Jose's bedroom, plants a backyard garden, cooks delectable food, reads the children stories and plays with Jose and his sister. Jose isn't sure, at first, if he likes the changes in his life and home, but learns that Abuelita is lively and has special things to share with her grandchildren.

Abuelita: Full of Life is about the importance of family. It is the celebration of and the melding of different generations into one household. It is the past for most of us in the United States--and it is a sad loss.

The illustrations are inviting and the message is valuable. It brought me back to my own childhood when my great-grandmother lived with us. I remember her knitting, listening to us talk, her stories and most of all the hugs and kisses lovingly given from the rocking chair. And that's a good thing.

Armchair Interviews says: Abuelita: Full of Life is a book children and adults will love. Many will feel the yearning of what was and is no more.

I loved this book for its depiction of intergenerational relationships. It is a gentle story about a little boy and his grandmother. The English/Spanish translations are superb. I think it will become a classic story for kindergarteners.

Loved that our granddaughter who is taking Spanish can now share some of her learnings with her Abuelita!
