PreS-Gr 3‘In this beautiful picture book, four everyday activities are depicted‘making tortillas, gathering flowers, washing clothes, and singing a lullaby‘as they are repeated by the women of a family over the last four generations. A little girl relates the simple text as her great-grandmother is shown making tortillas for her grandmother over an outdoor fire, her grandmother makes them for her mother in a farm kitchen with a cast-iron stove, her mother is shown cooking for her in a modern kitchen, and the child prepares paper tortillas for her doll on a toy stove. Each activity shares the refrain: "Every time it was the same, but different." The timeless quality of maternal love is evident throughout. Six Costa Rican women worked together to produce the striking acrylic folk-art paintings. With deeply saturated, glowing tones and a decidedly Central American style, the pictures enhance and extend the lyrical narrative, which is printed in English and in Spanish. The words and music of a traditional Spanish lullaby are appended. A lovely, nostalgic glimpse at Central American family life.‘Denise E. Agosto, formerly at Midland County Public Library, TX

"Every time it was the same, but different." That is the thematic refrain that pulls together four short stories about four generations of mothers and daughters who each make tortillas, gather flowers, wash clothes and sing lullabies in this bright, English-Spanish bilingual book. --"San Francisco Ecaminer & Chronicle, " November 1998
