When both grandpas, Abuelo and Opa, visit at the same time, they can’t understand each other’s language and there is a lot of silence. The grandson’s clever thinking helps find a way for everyone to share the day together as two cultures become one family.
This unique book includes a bonus fold-out and a note from the author sharing the true story of his own family.
“Accordionly is adorable.”
“The text is light and delightful and the illustrations are charming and capture the charm of this book and the story of a child with a Spanish speaking grandfather and a German speaking grandfather. The grandfathers share a passion for accordions and this love of music and the instrument bring the two grandfathers together. This is the perfect example of how a book can “teach a lesson” without getting bogged down in lecturing at the reader.”
“Fabulous and fun read.”
“This is educational by exploring two cultures in one family and how they come together.”
“Explores so much — families, food, music, language and culture.”
“I really like that the book features a child from two different cultural backgrounds and how he can find that they have similarities as well as differences and that they can come together as one big family.”
“I would buy this for a new preschool/Kindergarten teacher or for a child. It’s a great book to share”
“Written and illustrated well, great new vocabulary words from both cultures.”
