“The crisp autumn air and ripe pumpkins signal that it’s time for Abuela to make her dynamite empanadas. This rhythmic cumulative rhyme follows the process …. Along the way, grandchildren, Grandpa, cousins, aunts, and uncles get involved, making it truly a family project. The pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoons in bright, clean fall colors have just the right verve and humor to extend the repetitive text. Both the English and the Spanish are suitable for beginning readers as the repetition in the text reinforces vocabulary and recognition skills. A sound choice for ESL programs and libraries.”—School Library Journal
