Noted author Alma Flor Ada offers young readers eleven stories from her own childhood in Cuba - true stories about relatives and friends and the hacienda where she grew up for much of her elementary years.
These true stories from Alma Flor Ada's childhood are filled with family love and values. Told through the eyes of a child, a whole world comes to life for the reader: the blind great-grandmother who never went to school but whose wisdom and generosity overflowed to those around her; the hired hand Samoné whose love for music overcame all difficulties; her grandfather Modesto, who placed a higher value on human relationships than on his possessions. Eleven remarkable stories will move and inspire children and adults alike.
