My Abuelita

Written by: Tony Johnston and Yuvi Morales

First line: I live with my grandma.

Why you should read this book: A little boy goes through his daily routine with his very unconventional abuelita, who seems to have a great sense for the theatrical, as well as great comic timing. She is getting ready for work, and, eventually, we learn that all her action prepare her for her job: she's a storyteller. Of course, the young narrator wants to follow in her wacky footsteps.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You want your kids to aspire to real jobs, like tax preparation or retail.
