This prequel to Eric Velasquez's biographical picture book

Grandma's Records is the story of a Christmas

holiday that young Eric spends with his grandmother. After they prepare

their traditional Puerto Rican celebration, Eric and Grandma visit the

Metropolitan Museum of Art for a school project, where he sees a

painting by Diego Velasquez and realizes for the first time that he

could be an artist when he grows up. Grandma witnesses his fascination,

and presents Eric with the perfect Christmas gift—a sketchbook and

colored pencils—to use in his first steps toward becoming an artist. A

heartwarming story of self-discovery, Grandma's Gift

is a celebration of the special bond between a grandparent and

grandchild.
