I really loved this book. I like that it was in English but it also included some Spanish too. I think some of the things being said in the story seem real and they made sense. If my grandparents were still alive they would tell me the same thing this book said. This story incorporates a lot of traditional knowledge. ( )

This translanguaging story was very helpful to learn from as I still wonder how to navigate translanguaging in the classroom with my little experience in a bilingual class. I think this story is very fun for both language speakers to practice with and be able to comprehend the languages. ( )

This is a bilingual book that talks about the different weekend traditions that they have on the weekends. ( )

I love Saturdays and Domingos tells the story of a young girl who switches between her two sets of grandparents on the weekends. The two sets of grandparents are different but also similar in many ways. I love this story because it teaches a lesson about family differences and mixed multicultural families. ( )

This is a multicultural story about a young girl who loves the weekend! On Saturdays, she visits her father's parents, grandma and grandpa. On Domingos, she visits her mother's parents, Abuelita and Abuelito. This book encompasses multicultural family life through language changes, depending upon the day. It's a beautifully illustrated and clever book that is appropriate for K-3, although kindergartners may get fidgety due to length. It can open discussion of family life, weekends, and multiculturism.
