First FIVE Stars Review!!!

on February 14, 2014
This is a bilingual illustrated children s book, English and Spanish, filled with advice
observations, and goodwill homilies. The illustrations are renderings are from the mind
of a child, rather than the products of a professional artist, which help creates an impression
young readers can readily relate to. GRANDMAS' S TREASURE is indeed a little treasure in itself.

Gene Hull, author

on June 19, 2014
A sweet and touching story that carries a message easily understood and absorbed by children. It is written with insight and sympathy and the illustrations are simple and well suited to the style of the story. English and Spanish versions are presented in order and there is a useful short vocabulary section provided. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it as one which will both entertain and instruct.

on March 5, 2014
i was blessed to buy the book and read it to my ESOL students...they all enjoyed it and were able to relate to the story...Moises said: that sounds like my Grandma"...Jean-Louis said the same thing...so it doesn't matter how old you are or where you are from this will bring back memories of your childhood as you read it to your children..
