Editors Note This prequel to Eric Velasquez's biographical picture book Grandma's Records is the story of a Christmas holiday that young Eric spends with his grandmother. After they prepare their traditional Puerto Rican celebration, Eric and Grandma visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a school project, where he sees a painting by Diego Velasquez and realizes for the first time that he could be an artist when he grows up. Grandma witnesses his fascination, and presents Eric with the perfect Christmas gift—a sketchbook and colored pencils—to use in his first steps toward becoming an artist. A heartwarming story of self-discovery, Grandma's Gift is a celebration of the special bond between a grandparent and grandchild.
Annotation This autobiographical picture book follows Eric and his Puerto Rican grandmother as they enjoy Christmas vacation together. There is festive cooking, and grandma helps the little boy finish a homework assignment by taking him the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he is deeply inspired by Diego Velazquez's famous painting, Juan de Pareja. Accompanied by stunning illustrations and text in both Spanish and English. This sequel to GRANDMA'S RECORDS is the 2011 Pura Belpre Illustrator Award Winner.
