Leaving behind city life in the U.S. to visit her grandparents in rural Mexico was always an adventure for Chave. Her grandparents’ ranch held a world of wondrous surprises for her and her cousins. Tending to the animals, frolicking in nature, exploring the mystical world of traditional storytellers—all this and more was pure magic for Chave.

This bilingual picture book depicts the beauty of life on the U.S.-Mexico border as a gateway to two cultures, and will open children’s eyes to two lifestyles, two sets of traditions and customs.
