Santa Maria Foster Grandparents meet author, Ramona Moreno Winner, and get introduced to different cultures.

A little book with a big message – The Wooden Bowl – El bol de madera tugged at hearts  as Ramona introduced this Grimm’s Fairy Tale that has cropped up in many different cultures.  The Wooden Bowl is about a family who learns to care for a frail grandfather (and ultimately each other) with love and respect.

Things got hopping as Ramona introduced – Lucas and His Loco Beans a tale of the Mexican jumping Beans.  A grandfather takes his grandson up into the mountains and teaches him all about the jumping beans he played with as a child. 

All these books make Foster Grandparents hungry for Freaky Foods From Around the World.  A world-traveling grandmother decides to whip up unusual dishes for her grandson’s class.  On the menu are foods such as beef tongue, frog legs, rat, and among other things, crickets.  Fearless leaders began the sampling until others in the audience got into the action!  Yum!!!

These are fun, educational, bilingual books all grandchildren will enjoy.
