Item Description...
A young girl enjoys the similarities and the differences between her English-speaking and Spanish-speaking grandparents.

Publishers Description
Saturdays and Sundays are very special days for the child in this story. On Saturdays, she visits Grandma and Grandpa, who come from a European-American background, and on Sundays -- "los domingos --" she visits "Abuelito y Abuelita, " who are Mexican-American. While the two sets of grandparents are different in many ways, they also have a great deal in common -- in particular, their love for their granddaughter.
While we follow our narrator to the circus and the pier, share stories from her grandparents' pasts, and celebrate her birthday, the depth and joy of both cultures are conveyed in Spanish and English. This affirmation of both heritages will speak to all children who want to know more about their own families and ethnic backgrounds.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I Love Saturdays and ????  Oct 4, 2007
"I Love Saturdays y domingos" is one of the few children's book on the market that integrates two different cultures. In this book, a little girl spends Saturdays with her father's parents. The grandfather comes from Europe and the grandmother comes from California. On Sundays, the girl spends time with her mother's parents: abuelito (grandfather), who comes from Mexico and abuelita (grandmother), who is Native American.

Throughout the story, the little girl learns about her family's cultures. The little girl and two sets of grandparents play with animals, watch movies, go to the circus and do other things that families love to do. At the end of the story, they all come together for her birthday party.

Those who speak/read little or no Spanish may have difficulty with the Spanish text. The book does not offer pronunciation keys or meanings to the words. Although some of the words written in Spanish may be explained in the adjoining page when the girl visits her English-speaking relatives.

This book may be more appropriate for families familiar with both cultures or for children who are just beginning to learn about the Latin American culture.
A Circle of Love  Nov 6, 2003
A bright, beautiful little girl shares her pride in her Latin heritage. She describes the time she enjoys with both sets of grandparents and the excursions she takes with them. I like the way the young protagonist is so well loved that readers feel as if they are being drawn into a loving vortex.

I love the way Spanish words are included in this story and descriptions of Latin celebrations. This is a book to be savored and shared with others. The characters are very appealing and there is a sharing of cultural information and ideas. This is an excellent teaching tool. This book is for everyone. I heartily and happily recommend this book.
