    Alisa, Rosi, and Brian Amador narrate a sweet story of connecting across a generational and language divide. Mia's "far-away" grandmother has come to live with Mia and her family. Alisa's youthful and earnest voice tells listeners of Mia's struggles to talk with her abuela who is narrated in Spanish by Rosi. Neither Mia's EspaƱol nor abuela's English is strong enough for them to share their stories. Mia's supportive parents, voiced by Rosi and Brian, help her find the courage to keep trying. Mia and abuela learn to share their languages with the help of Mango, a friendly squawking parrot, narrated by Brian. Spanish is seamlessly woven into the story, and lively music and sound effects complement the narration of the picture book's bright illustrations.
    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.
