  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2010 December #1
    Sabrina is excited about the special gifts that her grandma has brought back from her visit to Mexico. As they play with the ribbons, clothes, and music makers, Abuelita explains each item's role in their cultural heritage. Sabrina also learns that cacao was important to her ancestors, who grew it on plantations, used it as currency, and developed it into chocolate, and together Abuelita and Sabrina celebrate cacao's delights further by making hot chocolate together from scratch. Price's language lacks rhythm, and a recipe or additional material about the cultural details discussed in the bilingual text would have been welcome. Still, with the high demand for bilingual books about Mexican culture, this will likely attract an audience, while the full-page, mixed-media artwork celebrating family heritage and togetherness will show well to a crowd.
