"This charming little book will introduce young readers to safe and effective natural remedies from the native traditions of the American Southwest. A good way to learn about the healing power of plants."—Andrew Weil, MD

Aaron has asked his grandfather Tata to teach him about the healing remedies he uses. Tata is a neighbor and family elder. People come to him all the time for his soothing solutions and for his compassionate touch and gentle wisdom. Tata knows how to use herbs, teas, and plants to help each one. His wife, Grandmother Nana, is there too, bringing delicious food and humor to help Tata's patients heal. An herbal remedies glossary at the end of the book includes useful information about each plant, plus botanically correct drawings.

Roni Capin Rivera-Ashford grew up in Nogales on the Arizona-Mexico border. Born into a pioneering Jewish family with roots in Eastern Europe, Roni embraced the languages, cultures, and people on both sides of the border. Now a retired bilingual educator, her first book, My Nana's Remedies / Los Remedios de mi Nana, is a classic, a parent's and teacher's friend for teaching children traditional values.

Antonio Castro L. is nationally recognized for his illustrations of books by Joe Hayes. Teaming up with his son, book designer Antonio Castro H., he uses his exacting illustrative skills to bring to life this story of family and plants. Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, Antonio has lived in the Juarez–El Paso area for most of his life.

From the Author:

I come from the Arizona-Mexico border where I embraced the languages, cultures andpeople from infancy.  As a lifelong bilingual educator, I now share these threads as I weave tapestries through my stories.
 
I hope to continue building bridges of communication, acceptance, self-confidence & promoting the elimination of discrimination through my books.

Being an award-winning author for MY NANA'S REMEDIES/LOSREMEDIOS DE MI NANA and HIP, HIP, HOORAY, IT'S MONSOON DAY!/¡AJÚA, YA LLEGÓ EL CHUBASCO!, and now for my 3rd book, MY TATA'S REMEDIES/LOSREMEDIOS DE MI TATA illustrated by Antonio Castro L. and published by Cinco Puntos Press, is an honor. TATA'S has been awarded the 2016 PURA BELPRÉ ILLUSTRATOR HONOR and the 2015 SOUTHWEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR.  Tata's has received endorsements from lateformer Governor & U.S. Ambassador Raúl H. Castro, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. AlmaFlor Ada, Yuyi Morales, Byrd Baylor, Amalia Amacio Molina Reyes of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, amongothers.  This title has also received reviews from Kirkus, Smithsonian's Blogger, Terry Hong, and others. My hope is that my books become tools to help preserve language, family &cultural traditions including history and science.  My next book in the making is: RAULITO BECOMES THE GOVERNOR/RAULITO LLEGA A SER EL GOBERNADOR.

About the Author:
