  • Files

Spinning through the air “like big birds playing,” Rosalba and her grandmother, Abuela, soar again on the magic of Abuela’s storytelling and Rosalba’s imagination. Together they fly to la isla, the island where Abuela grew up. They explore the bright tropical island-from the busy old city and the lush rain forest to the welcoming home of relatives where they share more of the family stories that can bridge time and distances.

Toda familia tiene historias. Cuando los miembros de la familia se juntan, inevitablemente intercambian historias. Algunas historias son divertidas, otras no, algunas siempre se recuerdan, algunas son historias nuevas. Son una especie de pegamento que puede unir a las familias desde ambos lados. Seguramente tu familia también cuenta historias, ya sea al contar lo que le sucedió a alguien hoy o el año pasado. Esta historia es sobre Abuela contándole a Rosalba todo sobre la isla caribeña donde creció.
