My Abuelita

Johnston, Tony. My Abuelita. Houghton Miffilin Harcourt. 2009. ISBN:9780152163303.

My book is about a grandma's daily routine from the time she wakes up to the time she goes to work. I t also includes the schedule of a little boy who is the narrator of this story. The illustrations are made out of polymer clay, wire, and acrylic paint. Then, they were photographed. I think these pictures are fun because they are in 3D. My favorite part was when Abuelita was buzzing in her black and yellow striped towel that made her look like a bumble bee. I would recommend this book to 1st graders because it has some hard words, but it also has many cool pictures.
