Author Natalia Sylvester narrates her story in a warm and joyful tone. Abuela travels from South America to the U.S. to visit her family. Her granddaughter, Dulce, is fascinated by everything Abuela has brought in her suitcase (maleta), including treats and presents. Dulce relishes her time with Abuela and when Abuela has to go home, Dulce makes sure Abuela has treasures for her cousins, whom she's never met. Abuela leaves Dulce a surprise, giving Dulce something to look forward to. Music and sound effects add depth and joy to the listening experience. Sylvester has a sweet, loving tone that works remarkably well for both Dulce and Abuela. Listeners with families living far away will be especially moved.
