Loving Lulu with Awilda Prignano

“My Abuelita would share stories about her heritage and customs from her homeland, Puerto Rico. From her, I learned how to speak Spanish. Join me on my adventure with my Abuelita!”~ Awilda Prignano

This is a story about a little girl named Lulu who spends a lot of time with her Abuelita while her Mom is at work. Lulu’s days are filled with activities such as listening to music, learning to cook as well as learning how to speak Spanish. Sometimes, she is able to help Abuelita take care of the babies. As time passes, Lulu notices changes happening and things just don’t seem the same with Abuelita. Join Lulu as she discovers the different ways there are to express and communicate love to each other in what we see, hear and feel. Awilda’s hope is that in sharing this story, the lesson will be embraced by adults as well as children.
