Estrellita in the Big CityGreat bilingual book! Estrellita, who was born in Puerto Rico, arrives in New York. As is the experience of millions immigrants, she can't wait to call back home and tell Abuela of her experiences. She finally calls home and shares with her Grandmother everything she sees, hears smells and tastes in her "New World." What surprises her most is the things she discovers in El Barrio, the neighborhood where everybody speaks Spanish. She tells Abuela of the food she eats that tastes just like grandma's.
She tells of the music store called La casita Latina. There she and her family, with the owner, sing Abuela's favorite song: "En mi viejo San Juan/ In My OLd San Juan. At the end of the book Estrellita tells her grandmother how much she misses her. She promises to call Abuela again to tell her of her first day of school in New York. I can't wait to read how her first day of school went! Immigrant children and their families will feel identified with Estrellita.
