Author: Alma Flor Ada
  • Alma Flor Ada’s grandmother taught her to read before she was three by writing the names of plants and flowers on the earth with a stick.  Reading and nature became very intertwined for her. 
  • The joy of reading a book was enhanced if she could read it outdoors, especially high up in the branches of a large tree.  From that favorite hideaway she could also observe the river down below and the world of small animals living in and around the river.
  • She wrote this story about her own granddaughter. Whenever she sees Camila, the first thing Camila says is “Tell me a story, Abuelita!”
  • Abuelita is another name for Grandmother.

Illustrator: Gerardo Suzan
