Rosalma and her Spanish-speaking abuela (grandmother) spend the day together in a city park where the two of them share an imaginary flight over the city. All of Abuela's comments and observations are made in Spanish, while either the context or Rosalma's translations into English make her statements clear for non-Spanish speakers. Elisa Kleven's vibrant, mixed-media collages add colorful whimsy to this visual and verbal delight. Winner, 1991 CCBC Caldecott Discussion. (Ages 4-7)
