Description


Follow an imaginative boy and his family as they take a faraway trip above the clouds and across the sea to visit his beloved grandma. Ginger Foglesong Guy's lyrical words draw readers gently along the journey, with each moment of adventure and tenderness—familiar to most young readers—captured by Viví Escrivá's sensitive watercolors. Simple words in both English and Spanish provide valuable bilingual vocabulary lessons on every page.

Sigue a un niño lleno de imaginación mientras atraviesa el cielo y el mar con su familia para visitar a su amada abuelita. Las palabras líricas de Ginger Foglesong Guy dulcemente dirigen el viaje del lector, y las sensibles acuarelas de Viví Escrivá capturan cada momento de aventura y ternura. Palabras sencillas en inglés y español en cada página proporcionan varias oportunidades para lecciones de vocabulario en ambos idiomas.
