A young girl finds each day filled with astonishing opportunities to learn from her different family members, and she reciprocates by passing along those new skills to younger family and friends.
Cuando Yo Sea Grande—When I Grow Up, a bilingual pattern book by author Virginia L. Cárdenas, illustrates the power of the extended Latino family as a curious and hardworking little girl learns countless lessons, including the love of books from her mother, the thrill of riding a bicycle without training wheels from her father, and how to make her grandmother’s delicious empanadas from her abuela.
Each family member helps the little girl by teaching her new lessons, new skills, and old traditions. By watching, listening, and learning lifelong lessons that are passed from one generation to another, she embraces the opportunity to learn and to teach.
Cuando Yo Sea Grande—When I Grow Up offers a tool for parents and teachers who want to teach languages, culture, and the power of learning from others.
