The Wooden Bowl – El bol de madera

by Ramona Moreno Winner

When grandfather comes to live with Diego and his family, Diego is ecstatic; he finds many similarities between himself and his grandfather.  Caring for an elderly parent becomes stressful for the adults and they begin exhibiting unkind behavior towards grandfather.

Diego teaches his parents a lesson on how to treat his aging grandfather.  The way the parents treat the grandfather now, is how Diego will be treating them when they become elderly and in need of care.  This bilingual story carries a message on respect for all generations.

Review by Maria Shriver
“It’s wonderful that you have written a book that encourages respect that elderly people deserve.  Amazing things can happen when people extend a helping hand to those in need.  Children, as well as adults, can benefit from your message and hopefully will pass it along to others.”
