Booklist - 08/01/2022 *Starred Review* As a new member of Julia's family arrives, Julia spends the summer with her grandmother on the outskirts of Mexico City. There is something magical about grandmother's home, from the backyard garden to the mornings filled with sweet bread and afternoons of birdsong and soft breezes. It seems like Julia's grandmother knows everything, so when a letter from Julia's parents makes her miss home, her grandmother knows just what to do. With a cup of hot chocolate, she shows Julia how to travel back in time using photo albums and wraps her up in comforting hugs. After Julia's parents arrive with the new baby, Julia shows her mother how to visit past memories. She knows there is something unique about this special home, but there is something even more magical inside of her grandmother. As readers enter Grandmother's home with Julia, readers will fall into a peaceful world. Beautiful watercolor-and-gouache illustrations bring to life the serenity found within the home and within Grandmother herself. The Spanish text perfectly conveys the quiet thoughts Julia has and the warmth and happiness her abuela brings. This Spanish picture book about a young girl's special summer with her grandmother will have readers young and old appreciating the simple beauty of the everyday. Highly recommended. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
