Mariana and Her Familia

In stock

A sweet and heartwarming picture book about a young girl forming a connection with her family—and her Abuelita—on her first trip to Mexico from debut author Mónica Mancillas and rising-star illustrator Erika Meza.

Mariana’s tummy does a flip as she and Mami cross the Mexican frontera. Mariana is visiting her Abuelita and extended family for the first time.

There are all new sights, smells, and sounds.

And at Abuelita’s house, Mariana is overwhelmed by new faces and Spanish words she doesn’t understand.

But with a story, some kindness, and a few new words from Abuelita, Mariana discovers that the love of family knows no cultural divide.

Full-color illustrations were created with watercolor pencils and gouache.
