KIRKUS REVIEW

While all the animals and birds are sleeping and the stars are shining and the moon is smiling, Abuelita tucks her little grandson and two granddaughters in with kisses and wishes for sweet dreams. Bright, colorful watercolors show happy children getting ready for bed, detailing the repetitive and rhythmically lulling bilingual story told by the eldest granddaughter. “When Grandma comes to tuck us in, she says, / Cuando Abuelita viene a darnos las buenas noches dice: / ‘Shh, shh, the squirrels are sleeping.’ / —Shh, shh…las ardillas están durmiendo. / And Grandma kisses Danny. / Y Abuelita le da un besito a Danny.” Abuelita’s loving attention and gentle words bring tranquility and assurance to all as eyes close for a night of peaceful rest. This second in the new My Family/Mi Familia series brings a soothing tone to a nightly ritual universal in any language or culture. (Picture book. 1-3)
