Abstract:

While riding on a bus with her grandmother, a little girl imagines that they are carried up into the sky and fly over the sights of New York City.

"¿Y qué tal si los pájaros me alzaran y me llevaran volando por encima del parque? ¿Qué pasaría si yo volara? ¡Claro que ella vuela! Y lleva consigo a su abuela y nos narra, en español sazonado con algunas frases en inglés, este maravilloso viaje. Muchos de los lugares que visitan le recuerdan a la abuela el momento de su llegada a este país."--Publisher's description.

Flying over Manhattan Island, turning somersaults in midair. Gliding low to race the sailboats, spreading skirts for sails. Rosalba and her grandmother, her abuela, are taking an extraordinary trip - on Rosalba's imagination. "Tantos pájaros. So many birds." Rosalba says to herself, feeding the birds in the park with Abuela. "What if they picked me up and carried me high above the park? What if I could fly?" And fly she does, calling Abuela up to her and narrating their marvelous journey in English spiced with Spanish phrases. Many of the sights they see remind Abuela of when she first came to this country. Collage illustrations burst with energy and beauty, transforming New York City into the treasure for readers that it is for Rosalba and Abuela. Their adventure is a spirited tribute to the power of love and family pride between a little girl and her grandmother. -- ‡c From publisher's description.
