Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 2/8/2014

    " I loved this book--positive but not perfect immigrant characters and great values. Both the grandfather and grandson are very real. This is what picture books should be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia E Sherman | 2/4/2014

    " Nice story and lesson being learned from this author. As usual, Ms. Bunting writes a story that must be shared with all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yadira | 2/3/2014

    " This book tells the story of a young boy and his grandfather who just came to the United States from a different county. The boy tries to get his grandfather a job, but lies about what his grandfather's strengths are. This book can be used to being to have a conversation about immigration and what it means to come to this country and try to find a job. Some key issues can be brought up with the language barriers and with working as an immigrant. "

    " immigration, integrity "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/26/2014

    " 30 months - this book is a bit wordy for the average 2 1/2 year old but O sat and listened and seemed interested through the whole story. A story about truth, hard work and honor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Mckinney | 1/17/2014

    " This is a good one for kids who want to read about non-Anglo cultures. It also provides a nice lesson about social equality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna Morris | 1/14/2014

    " This is a sentimental story of a young man that learns a very important life lesson from his grandpa. Great for teaching morals! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell | 12/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 12/17/2013

    " Life of immigrant day laborer. Would be good for students who see this in action but don't understand it. But book is limited in perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie Pohlig | 12/5/2013

    " This book is the story of a boy who has to translate for his abuelo to help him get a job, but he lies about his abuelo's abilities, a twist I wasn't expecting. This book shows Mexican-Americans, and also teaches the importance of being honest. I like that it inserts several Spanish words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 11/27/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suz | 2/2/2013

    " Another good story to use in teaching the importance of honesty. "
