Spanish is the language of my family

Genhart, Michael
It's time to prepare for the school Spanish spelling bee, and Manolo is determined to take home the grand prize. Naturally, he turns to his loving abuela for help and together they spell the words: H-e-r-m-o-s-o. Beautiful. O-r-g-u-l-l-o-s-o. Proud. F-u-e-r-t-e. Strong. While they practice, Abuela shares stories of when she was a little girl. Back then, students were not permitted to speak Spanish in public school and were harshly treated for doing so. Hearing these stories inspires Manolo to study even harder.
