I love Saturdays y Domingos

Y'all!! I may have found a new favorite bilingual book! This picture book is just plain fabulous! A little girl compares her two sets of grandparents, one set in Caucasian and one set is Hispanic. It is just beyond lovely how she revels in the joys of both cultures. You will definitely want to read this one if you haven't already!
The illustrations are also just lovely. I read the book...and then re-read several times and studies the pictures. They are just so nicely done. The skin tones are especially wonderful, capturing the diversity of the world this precious girl lives in.
