Press for Abuelita and I Make Flan

"A Tale as sweet as flan."

- Kirkus Reviews

"Anita helps Abuelita make a special flan for Abuelo’s birthday in this lovely picture book filled with family and love. (...) The concise text sprinkled with Spanish words perfectly conveys Anita’s thoughts and feelings, and the conversations between family members are full of love and support. A recipe for cheese flan, page of translations, and photos of the author’s family accompany the text.

VERDICT A warm celebration of family and traditions, this title is a wonderful addition to picture book collections for children.
