PreSchool-Grade 3-In this pleasant bilingual picture book, Chave, a grown woman, recalls her childhood trips from her border home in Brownsville, TX, to her grandparents' ranch in northern Mexico. Large, bright drawings show young Chave, her brother, and their cousins racing around the ranch, sliding down dirt hills, herding baby goats, riding wooden barrels, and listening to a ranch hand tell stories. The characters' faces are a little stiff, but the illustrations are colorful and otherwise appealing. Overall, an affectionate picture of rural Mexican life.Denise E.
