A Walk With Grandpa
Un paseo con abuelo
by Sharon Solomon

Grandpa and Daniela walk through the woods exchanging metaphors in English and in Spanish. "You are my sunshine."
"Eres mi rayo de sol."
"You are my moonshine."
"Eres mi rayo de luna."
Then, they exchange compliments using synonyms.
"You are my happy."
"Eres mi felicidad."
"You are my glad."
"Eres mi alegría."

The love between the granddaughter and grandfather forms a strong bond and is multiplied by their word games.
