  • Abuelita's Heart

    Amy Cordova

    Paperback (Aladdin, April 14, 2008)
    ABUELITA LIVES in a land the color of sunset, with a soft white dog named Cristal, a yard full of friendly animal visitors, and a heart as big and as round as the entire world. Abuelita says, "The earth is enchanted here. La tierra esta encantada aqui." And indeed it is. Set in the American Southwest, this richly told and beautifully illustrated picture book pays tribute to family connections, family history, and community, and it shares one grandmother's heartfelt advice to her little granddaughter. "It is by reaching out to one another that we, too, create something beautiful to last throughout the ages."

    Diana Cohn, Amy Cordova

    Hardcover (Chronicle Books, April 1, 2002)
    Mateo and his father carve juguetes, small wooden animals his family sells at the fiestas in Oaxaca. But Mateo wants to carve much larger animals-goats as pink as bougainvillea with cactus-green speckles, and purple cats with corn-yellow spots. When he tells his father how he longs to bring these large animals to life, his father only scowls, but Mateo perseveres. Including an informative afterword on this vibrant Mexican art form, this colorful tale inspires readers of all ages to follow their passion.
