Grandma’s Chocolate by Mara Price
In this picture book, a little girl named Sabrina spends precious time with her grandma, who is visiting from Mexico. Grandma teaches Sabrina about the Aztec and Mayan history of her family. Grandma brings Sabrina colorful ribbons, a whistle, a drum, a blouse and some Mexican chocolate. Grandma talks with her about the music, clothing, traditions, and rituals of her ancestors. Sabrina is full of questions about her ancestors and their way of life. Grandma teaches her that chocolate comes from the cacao seed. She teaches Sabrina about the importance of the cacao seed in the Aztec and Mayan economy, and she shows her how to make chocolate from the seeds. They enjoy a cup of hot chocolate together.
