Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Lucitita loves her To Armando. He is really her great-uncle, and even though he is old, he knows how to enjoy life, a gift he shares abundantly with the younger members of his family. Lucitita observes that since her to came to live with them "...everything and everyone is joined together." The oversized double-page spreads are arranged chronologically, from one May to the next, by which time the man has died. There is just enough foreshadowing in the flowing, evocative text to keep readers wanting to see what will happen next. Grifalconi's soft watercolor and pencil illustrations are soothing, doing a creditable job of setting a mood of gentleness, connection, and love. An excellent story for sharing one-on-one or in groups, this is similar in tone to Carmen Santiago Nodar's Abuelita's Paradise (Albert Whitman, 1992) and Pat Mora's A Birthday Basket for Tia (Macmillan, 1992), both of which celebrate cross-generational relationships.Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
School Library Journal
T o Armando comes to live with Lucitita's family, and everyone feels closer since his arrival. For 11 months, he contributes to the rich experiences often typical within an extended family, and especially typical of Latino families all over the United States. It is only after the man dies that Lucitita understands his promise never to leave them. (Gr 1-3) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A graceful chronicle of the last year in a beloved great-uncle's life, relayed month by month in the first-person narration of a Mexican-American girl. T¡o Armando moves in with Lucitita's family after the death of his wife, Amalia. A connection is drawn between the elderly man and Lucitita and the year is filled with thoughtful exchanges between the two as she puzzles out his serene reaction to losing his wife. Readers begin to sense that T¡o Armando is preparing Lucitita for his own passing. "I will never leave you," he promises, and she realizes, after his death, that she understands. The lengthy prose is unusually well-crafted, quiet and subdued yet filled with authentic details of life in this household. T¡o Armando is a unique person, visiting strangers in the hospital and spreading kindness wherever he goes. Grifalconi's gentle watercolors group people together in intimate moments and in larger groups that convey familial bonds. (Picture book. 5-8)
