Mia's abuela has left her sunny house with parrots and palm trees to live with Mia and her parents in the city. The night she arrives, Mia tries to share her favorite book with Abuela before they go to sleep and discovers that Abuela can't read the words inside.

While they cook, Mia helps Abuela learn English ("Dough. Masa."), and Mia learns some Spanish too. But it's still hard for Abuela to learn the words she needs to tell Mia all her stories. Then Mia sees a parrot in a pet-shop window, and she gets the perfecto idea for how to help the whole family communicate a little better.

This endearing tale speaks loudly and clearly about learning new things and the love that unites family members—no matter how far apart they may live.
