"Vámanos," Mamá says.
"Let's go!"
Together we garden and bake.
We bike and paint a mural,
colorful and bright.
I do some things sola,
all by myself.
Mamá says, "¡Perfecto!"—
just perfect!
With Mamá, I feel like a girasol,
a sunflower, tall and proud.

For a bilingual girl and her mamá, a loving bond is about being together . . . and independent. Arthur Dorros's skillful and subtle blend of English and Spanish narrative, illustrated with bold, striking paintings by award-winning artist Rudy Gutierrez, offers readers a poignant reminder that every day with Mamá is dulce—sweet!
