Genre: Children's 4-7
Published: March 7, 2023
I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.
This is a short book about a boy who does almost everything with his grandfather (Abuelo), until one day his abuelo goes to the hospital and doesn't come home. He tries to do the same things he did with his abuelo alone, but it's just not the same. Then his neighbor steps in and he doesn't feel quite so alone anymore.
The language in this book was pretty simple so even young children should be able to understand what is going on. A budding reader may also be able to read it with minimal assistance.
The illustrations were bold and colorful, and had me questioning some things until close to the end. I seriously wondered why the grandfather was only spending time with his grandson and not the granddaughter that was literally watching from afar on every page. Then I found out she was just following them around (presumably) and wasn't related to them at all. I don't think I'd want to read this book too many times, but a few rereads wouldn't be awful. Overall I give this book 3.7 out of 5 stars. - Katie
