Mamá Graciela’s Secret by Mayra Calvani

25_Mama_G_Reg_Cover_Cube__64118.1497550310I received the book Mamá Graciela’s Secret Written by Mayra Calvani and illustrated by Sheila Fein as a review copy from BookR3vi3ws and am thankful to the author for the same.

The blurb:

Mamá Graciela’s TENDER, CRUNCHY, SPICY bacalaítos fritos are the best in town…

Local customers (including stray cats!) come from all over the island to enjoy her secret recipe. But when the Inspector discovers that Mamá secretly caters to so many cats and he threatens to close her tiny restaurant, Mamá must come up with a plan to save it—and all of the animals she loves.

My take:

This is a beautifully illustrated book for all ages. Meant for 3 to 7 year olds according to the author, I was transported into Mama Graciela’s world as I was reading the book. The author has beautifully portrayed the bond between Mama and the cats. The language is simple and easily understandable.

An excellent read aloud book for kids.

Highly recommended.

DISCLAIMER: I received the book as a review copy from BookR3vi3ws in exchange for an honest review. I have not received any monetary compensation for the same.
