Abuela's Weave

This story about the importance of family pride and personal endurance introduces children to the culture of Guatemala through the eyes of little Esperanza, who works with her abuela--her grandmother--on weavings to sell at the public market. Full color throughout.

"Sanchez's illustrations rendered in acrylic on canvas vividly capture the importance of this "rite of initiation" for a young girl under the lovingly firm guidance of her grandmother. Color and composition on each page authentically re-create images of rural Guatemala." -- School Library Journal
