Grandma's Records

Every summer, Eric goes to live with his grandmother in El Barrio (Spanish Harlem) while his parents work. Through the long, hot days, Grandma fills her apartment with blaring horns and conga drums of bomba y merengue—the music she grew up with in Puerto Rico— sharing her memories and passions with Eric.

From School Library Journal:

Velasquez's touching yet simply told memoir of this tender relationship is lovingly captured in his illustrations.... Add this to your study of memoir and be sure to read it aloud in celebration of grandparents and the children they love. You'll be glad you did.
