Starred reviews in Booklist and Publisher's Weekly
Readers from multigenerational immigrant families will recognize the all-too-familiar language barrier. They will also cheer for the warm and loving relationship between Abuela and Mia, which is evident in both text and illustrations even as the characters struggle to understand each other. This warm family story is a splendid showcase for the combined talents of Medina, a Pura Belpré award winner, and Dominguez, an honoree. —Kirkus Reviews
Everything about this book will make readers want to share it with someone they love. A timeless story with wide appeal. —School Library Journal
