Overview

Move over Dora the Explorer. Out of the way Junie B. Gabí está aquí! A school and family-based Little Apple series with a funny, spunky Latina main character--a wonderful first for Scholastic!

It's so hard to say, ¡ADIOS! Gabi LOVES that her abuelita is visiting. But she knows that sooner or later Abuelita has to go back home to Puerto Rico...unless Gabi can think up a plan to make her stay. Gabi tries teaching Abuelita to speak English, signing them up for kickboxing classes, & helping out with chores. But the whispered plans between her parents & Abuelita don't stop. Gabi's going to have to come up with something better, something BIGGER, something more...risky. But Gabi can't think of everything. And she's about to get a GRANDE surprise she could never have seen coming...

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book in the "Get Ready for Gabi!" series features three major themes that intertwine to create an enjoyable and exciting read for young students. First, Gabi and her brother, Miguelito, must face the fact that their grandmother, who's been visiting them in Northern California for a while now, intends to return to her native Puerto Rico soon. Gabi vows to think up some plan that will prevent her beloved grandmother from leaving. Hence, the second and third major themes take shape. One involves finding and nurturing some baby opossums and convincing Abuelita to stay and take care of them, and the other centers around Gabi's feud with her biggest enemigo at school, the troublesome Johnny Wiley. Gabi is convinced that if she can get into trouble at school, her grandmother will have to stay to help teach her right from wrong. However, when she teaches Johnny a rude phrase in Spanish during a culture-sharing exercise and convinces him that it means, "Welcome to our classroom," she never dreams he will actually have the chance to use it on some Nicaraguan guests. Peppered throughout this humorous book are Spanish words and phrases, which the author makes perfectly clear through context and direct translation. This book portrays Hispanic culture in a positive light, demonstrates the benefits gained from knowing two languages, and shows Gabi learning from her mistakes. It would make an excellent read-aloud selection for a class or would equally be enjoyed by individual readers. 2004, Scholastic, Ages 8 to 12.
