From School Library Journal:

K-Gr-3–Isabela enjoys every waking moment that she spends with her abuela when she comes to visit. She marvels when her grandmother combs out her long braid that £flowed in soft ripples down to her waist.¥ Braiding Isabela' hair, she weaves colorful ribbons matched by equally colorful tales of all types, inspiring the child to write her own. Each time Isabela asks Abuela to read a story she has written, the woman finds an excuse until Abuela finally confesses that she is £a storyteller, not a reader,¥ and Isabela cleverly uses the lotería (a bingo-like game from Mexico) to teach her how to read. Lindmark' colorful acrylic illustrations capture the unique bonds of an abuela-nieta relationship as well as the love and warmth of a young girl nurtured by a loving Latino family in modern-day America. Children familiar with the lotería game will enjoy Rene Colato' Playing Lotería/El juego de la lotería (Luna Rising, 2009). For a similar £grandmother learning to read¥ story, also see Eve Bunting' The Wednesday Surprise (Clarion, 1989).–Oralia Garza de Cortés, Latino Children' Literature Consultant, Pasadena, CA
