The morning of Grandma Beetle's birthday, Senor Galavera arrives at her door, ready to take her onto the next life. 'Just a minute,' Grandma Beetle tells him. She still has one house to sweep, two pots of tea to boil, three pounds of corn to make into tortillas--and that's just the start! Using both Spanish and English words to tally the party preparations, Grandma Beetle cleverly delays her trip and spends her birthday with a table full of grandchildren-- and her surprise guest. This spirited tribute to the rich traditions of Mexican culture is the perfect introduction to counting in both English and Spanish. The vivacious illustrations and lyrical text are sure to be adored by young readers everywhere.
