Abuelitas (grandmothers) are some of the most beloved members in Latinx/e families, and this fun, endearing, and inclusive gift book full of practical life advice, wisdom, tips, and sayings, all written in a signature abuela voice, with Spanish throughout, is perfect for those looking to have grandmotherly wisdom at their fingertips, no matter their cultural background.

How many times have we heard from our abuelas, “Ponte un sueter que tendras frio” or “Al que madruga, Dios ayuda” or “ Y para cuando los nietos?” Sometimes, we just need the advice of our wise abuelitas. This book-which contains a collection of traditional and classic tips, messages, sayings, and instructions-brings together advice from abuelas all over. Keep your home clean, learn abuela essentials on hygiene, revisit nostalgic recipes, and learn how to maintain relationships with others and yourself. Just like abuela, this book comes in a bright, colorful, cute little package, with gorgeous full-colored illustrations. With Spanish peppered throughout, this book is as close to abuela as can be. And just like abuela, this book can get a bit cheeky-so watch out for things that will make you grab your forehead and say: Ay abuela!

Whether our abuelas live two houses away, thousands of miles away, or are no longer with us, we can carry on their wisdom with this little book. No matter your heritage or cultural background, this mighty book is for anyone who wants, has, or has had an abuelita-figure in their life.
