Accordionly: Abuelo and Opa Make Music ~  

When both grandpas, Abuelo and Opa, visit at the same time, they can’t understand each other’s language and there is a lot of silence. The grandson’s clever thinking helps find a way for everyone to share the day together as two cultures become one family.
This unique book includes a bonus fold-out and a note from the author sharing the true story of his own family.  - Publisher, Magination Press
“Genhart draws on his own family's history for inspiration in his newest diversity-celebrating picture book…. This is a reassuring story, emphasizing that though we may be different we can find common ground, an especially important message for multiracial/multiethnic children who can often feel pulled between competing identities… Burris' dot-eyed and brightly colored illustrations are darling, highlighting each culture well…. As mixed-race families continue to grow, this title is sure to find a ready audience.” —Kirkus Reviews
