Hidden Gems at La Casa Azul Bookstore 2/4/2014

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
We are kicking off another week at La Casa Azul Bookstore with a review of a great children’s book. 

This week’s book is Grandmother, Have the Angels Come? by Denise Vega, illustrated by Erin Eitter Kono.

“Grandmother, have the angels come…” So begins this heartwarming story dealing with the bond between that of a grandparent and grandchild. With a whimsical and musical tone, the grandmother of this story answers the many questions her granddaughter asks about aging and whether she will always be by her granddaughter’s side. The reader as well as the granddaughter feel the warmth of the responses by the grandmother which not only explain aging but also reassures the granddaughter that their love will keep them united forevermore. The beauty of the writing in this story is only surpassed by the brightly colored and brilliant illustrations all of which combined evoke the feeling of being wrapped around in the safety and warmth of a grandmother’s embrace. This story is perfect both for children and for adults who share in memories of grandparents or other elders we hold dear.

Think this is a great book? Make sure to keep an eye for it and other great finds in our children’s section.

A reminder that this book, and all of the Hidden Gems can be found at La Casa Azul Bookstore
