Finding the Music / En pos de la música

By The Horn Book Guide

When Reyna accidentally breaks her abuelito’s old vihuela (a small mariachi guitar), the one connection she has to him, she sets out to fix it. Instead, she becomes closer to him than before through memories from the people her grandpa inspired. Text in Spanish and English weaves the thoughtful tale, as Alarcão’s soft acrylic illustrations bring a full Hispanic American community to life.
