    Starred Review When her Spanish-speaking grandmother comes to live with Mia and her family, Mia is happy but also worried that she won't be able to tell her all the things a granddaughter should because of their language barrier. Clever Mia—voiced by Alisa Amador, whose bright, youthful tones carry the bulk of the narration—soon comes up with a plan involving a parrot named Mango so that Abuela can learn, and so can Mia. The Amador family, who also narrates the English-language version, creates a delightful and loving interplay among themselves in this Spanish edition. Rosi's Mami conveys a caring mother, and Brian's Mango, the parrot who brings Mia and Abuela together, offers a surprising, charming, and delightful flavor to this Pura Belpre´ Award–winning book. The Spanish is clear, with mild accents that fit with the setting. English words are used when necessary to convey the communication difficulties and learning experiences that Mia and Abuela encounter. Upbeat Latin music composed by Brian Amador and appropriate background sound effects round out and enrich the production.
    Mia is not sure what to think when her Abuela comes to live with her family in the city. They share a bedroom but speak different languages and Abuela is sad about leaving her sunny house with wild parrots in mango trees. How Mia and Abuela develop their relationship while learning to communicate makes for a richly-told, uplifting story that lovingly blends generations and cultures.
