Abuela’s Super Capa

Written by Ana Siqueira
Illustrated by Elisa Chavarri
Published by HarperCollins Publishers

Saturdays are superhero days. Equipped with their milkshakes and capas, Luis and his abuela can turn anything into an adventure.

But when Abuela gets sick, Luis has to learn a new way to be a hero. With some help from his sister, Luis learns that change isn’t all that bad and there are many new adventures to have, even if they look a little different.

Perfect for families experiencing sickness and loss, this engaging multigenerational story will help young children find the language to express their feelings and adjust to change.

A heartwarming bilingual picture book about a young boy who learns to accept that Abuela needs to retire her super capa.

Look for the Spanish version, La supercapa de Abuela: Abuela’s Super Capa (Spanish Edition).
