Eric really enjoyed his summer visits with his grandmother in Spanish Harlem (El Barrio).  He loved to listen to her tales of growing up in Puerto Rico as they listened to her old records.  Sometimes he danced with Grandma to her favorite salsa records.  Now a grown up Eric shares his memories with us, how a grandma taught a young boy to know, to feel, to love his roots.  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
