Book Description

Julia Alvarez’s heartwarming novel—now in Spanish.

De cómo tía Lola vino de visita a quedarse, una novela juvenil de Julia Alvarez, cuenta la deliciosa historia de una familia dominicana, instalada en Vermont, que recibe la visita de una pariente muy especial. La irresistible, incontrolable e incluso mágica tía Lola transforma la vida de su familia. Sombreros, pañuelos, vestidos alegres, tacones, maracas, un tambor par alas fiestas, café, hierbabuena, orégano, anís, hojas de guanábana, ajíes…, su alegría invade la casa y—poco a poco—a todo el pueblo. Un relato rico, cálido y lleno de humor, que nos llevará a sonar con la posibilidad de tener una tía tan entrañable como tía Lola.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars para motivar a una hija de 12 años a leer May 27, 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
tengo un hija de 12 años que necesitaba motivarla en la lectura, le compre este libro y hasta el minuto esta bien contenta, no digo que se lo devoro, pero es primera vez que la veo algo interesado en leer algo distinto a one direction, es un libro con fantasía como para la edad.

I use this book in my advanced Spanish Classes and the students just love it. The book is cute and enjoyable, but gives the students many points of discussion. I will use it again next year..

La verdad que Julia Álvarez es una de mis autoras favoritas, principalmente porque usa un lenguaje fácil y divertido y con sus cuentos anécdotas me ayuda a desconectar del estrés del diario vivir. La forma jocosa en que describe las costumbres de nuestro pueblo e incluso localidades que las puedo dibujar en mi mente me hacen volar la imaginación.
