Praise for Grandmother's Nursery Rhymes/Las Nanas de Abuelita

"This delightful book blends English and Spanish texts with fanciful watercolor-and-ink illustrations. The parallel versions of these lullabies, tongue twisters, and riddles from South America take advantage of word play in both languages....Perfect for family sharing, especially where children are helping their parents learn English as a second language."--School Library Journal

"A bilingual challenge to Mother Goose...fun-to-read rhythm in both Spanish and English."--Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Compiled by/Compilado por Nelly Palacio Jaramillo; Illustrated by/Ilustrado por Elivia

Nelly Palacio Jaramillo was inspired by the birth of her granddaughter, Lucia, to collect the rhymes and verses of her childhood that evolved into Las Nanas, her first book for children.

Ms. Jaramillo was born in Cartagena, Colombia, but grew up in nearby Barranquilla. She came to the United States in 1962, and now lives with her husband in Flushing, New York.

Elivia Savadier pored over hundreds of photographs of Colombia and of the Jaramillo family before beginning the illustrations for Las Nanas.

A native of South Africa, Elivia moved to the United States in 1986. She makes her home in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, with her husband and their daughter, Sadye.

This is her fourth picture book.
