A girl in Guatemala learns about family tradition and trust from her grandmother.

Esperanza's Abuela, her grandmother, is unmatched in her skill in weaving traditional Mayan tapestries. She has shared her gift with her granddaughter, and now they plan to sell their goods at the market. However, the birthmark on Abuela's face may scare customers away. So Esperanza must cope with the city streets and find buyers alone.

This touching story of personal growth and family pride is illustrated with authentic Guatemalan scenery that gives life to the country's radiant landscape and bustling city streets.

Vienna RoseListen to Vienna Rose read Abuela's Weave to you.  A marvelous example of the magical encounter between a child and books that we wish for all children.

"The story centers on showing respect for our elders, an appreciation of the extended family and the importance of learning folk arts that have been passed on through generations. Young Latinos will see their own family's reverence for abuelitas (grandmothers) validated in a story in which the old and familiar clearly triumph over the "new and improved." –SAN FRANCISCO CHRONCILE

"An excellent first showing...The relationship is warm and the many authentic details are vividly described. Handsome, appealing, and sure to be useful." –KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Castañeda’s rich narrative effectively evokes the harmonious way of life of many Indian communities in Latin America.... A book to be read independently and enjoyed by all children." –SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"The strength here lies in the wealth of cultural detail presented almost unobtrusively within a story that will appeal to young listeners." –BOOKLIST
