Rosalba and her grandmother, her abuela, are having an extraordinary adventure. How bởi they manage this exhilirating travel that started in the park? On Rosalba"s marvelous imagination.While riding on a bus with her grandmother, a little girl imagines that they are carried up inlớn the sky and fly over the sights of New York City.An innovative fantasy narrated by a Hispanic-American child who imagines she"s rising inkhổng lồ the air over the park and flying away with her loving, rosy-cheeked abuela (grandmother). From the air, they see Manhattung streets, docks, an airport, tourist attractions, and Rosalba"s father"s office. The simple text could be enjoyed as a read-aloud or as a read-alone for newly independent readers. What makes the book so interesting is Dorros"s integration of Spanish words and phrases via Abuela"s dialogue within the English text. While some phrases are translated by the child, others will be understood in context. As insurance, a glossary, which provides definitions và pronunciations, is appended. The illustrations sing out a celebration of the love and joy that underlies the brief, straightforward narrative sầu. Combining vibrant watercolor & pastel images with interesting snippets of collage in an exuberant folk-art style, Kleven depicts the adventurous, warm-hearted Abuela và the jazzy, colorful topography of an energetic, multiethnic thành phố. Thoughtful kiến thiết extends to the endpapers featuring cloud formations that cleverly echo many images from the story. While not bilingual in the stricchạy thử sense, this book is a less self-conscious, more artfully natural approach khổng lồ multicultural material.In this tasty trip, Rosaltía is ``always going places"" with her grandmother--abuela . During one of their bird-feeding outings lớn the park, Rosalcha wonders aloud, ``What if I could fly?"" Thus begins an excursion through the girl"s imagination as she soars high above sầu the tall buildings and buses of Manhattan, over the docks & around the Statue of Liberty with Abuela in tow. Each stop of the glorious journey evokes a vivid memory for Rosalba"s grandmother and reveals a new glimpse of the woman"s colorful ethnic origins. Rosalba"s language is simple and melodic, suggesting the graceful images of flight found on each page. Kleven"s ( Ernst ) mixed-truyền thông media collages are vibrantly hued & intricately detailed, the various blended textures reminiscent of folk art forms. I think children"s imagination is very important, because imagination is the most active sầu factor of innovation ability, the children will become more creative sầu as long as they are imaginative sầu. ...more
