This book was about a boy and his grandma. His grandma did not speak english so it was hard for her to understand a read around town. The boy and his grandma went to the market to go ingredients for Christmas dinner. After that they went home and started on it before the boy could go to the museum for his assignment. After they finished they went to the museum and found a painting of a puerto rican just like the boy and his grandma so that made them very happen. Due to this that made grandma think about what to get the boy for christmas and it gave her an idea of a sketch book and a pencil. This book would be really good for ELL and ESL students due to the fact that some is in spanish. I think this is a good book because it would make students who are not good at reading in english, want to read this book. ( )

Grandma's Gift by Eric Velasquez entails the story of Eric a young boy who goes to visit his grandma. Eric and his grandmother are preparing for the Puerto Rican Celebration when Eric discovers a painting of Diego Velasquez. Eric then realizes that he wants to become an artist. Nevertheless, Eric's grandmother presents him with a sketchbook and colored pencils to help Eric pursue his dream. I would recommended this book because it teaches the story of self discovery and discovering your talent. Eric would have never visited the museum had he not asked his grandmother for permission. His grandmother often never left the house and now she was able to discover Eric's talent. This book teaches the lesson of stepping out of your comfort zone. ( )

This book demonstrates a great mixture of culture. This book describes of how younger Eric spent his holiday break with his grandmother. Grandma was not able to read English, yet she promised to take him to the museum in New York after the made their traditional Puerto Rico treat, pasteles. Once they made it to the Museum, Eric was worried that he would have to translate everything to her. What surprised them is that there was a painting of someone from Puero Rico and grandmother was actually able to talk about this painter to Eric. This is an amazing story I can use to compare how my relationship with my grandmother was as well. Many times I thought I had to translate everything, yet many times she surprised me with her knowledge of what was around. ( )

When Eric's teacher gave his grandmother a note about the holiday project of visiting a special exhibit at the Metropolitan Art Museum, it brought a new adventure. Eric's grandmother never traveled from El Barrio, NY. Eric enjoyed being with her as she yearly took him to the local La Marqueta (fresh food market).

As they once again obtained ingredients for pasteles, a traditional Puerto Rican dish made primarily at Christmas time, the market was busy with sights and sounds of the season.

Traveling to the museum was yet another adventure. As they went up the huge flight of stairs to the second floor, they found the painting Eric's teacher recommended. The portrait of Juan de Pareja is one of the most prized collections of the museum. Paying a large sum of 5.5 million in 1971, set a record for the acquisition cost of a painting.

This famous painting by Diego Velazquez remains a prized portrait at the museum.

Researching the painting and observing it closely resonated with Eric and affirmed his love of art. For Christmas, Eric's grandmother gave him a set of colored artistry pencils and a large sketchbook, which started the opening of the door of recognition that Eric did indeed possess talent.

Filled with the holiday customs of Eric's Puerto Rican heritage, and the strong family bond, makes this a very special book. ( )

Perfect illustrations that portrayed Juan and his grandma’s culture. The pictures show Hispanic foods and traditions. Juan’s grandma spoke little English, if any so he translated for her. Illustrations of Juan pointing to pictures went perfect with the story of him having to translate for his grandma. From finding a portrait of a Hispanic slave at the museum, grandma gifts Juan with a sketchbook of his own as shown in the very last picture so he can draw his own portraits. ( )
