Abuelita’s Tree, by Cynthia MacGregor (7/27)

No Title

No Description

“When you give love, you get back love.” That’s the lesson taught by Abuelita’s own abuelita. (“Abuelita” is Spanish for “Grandma.”) Abuelita certainly loves all the neighborhood kids, and they love her too, as well as her stories and her cookies. 

But why would she want a shriveled-up tree that gives nothing but wrinkled, sour fruit? Spring brings a surprise to the neighborhood kids, to their parents, and even to grumpy, grouchy Mr. Diaz. 

Only Abuelita isn’t surprised. She knew all along about the power of love.
