A Song of Frutas

Written by Margarita Engle
Illustrated by Sara Palacios
Published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers

The little girl loves visiting her grandfather in Cuba and singing his special songs to sell all kinds of fruit: mango, limón, naranja, piña, and more! Even when they’re apart, grandfather and granddaughter can share rhymes between their countries like un abrazo—a hug—made of words carried on letters that soar across the distance like songbirds.
