In this second helping of Mora’s My Family/Mi familia easy-reader series, an abuelita prepares her three grandchildren for bed with soft kisses and whispers about sleeping animals. The repetitive text –along with the soothing, slightly disproportionate illustrations of a happy Latino family – is perfect for young readers. Librarians will find this a welcome addition to their collection of easy-readers in Spanish or English.
