Grandma;s Chocolate/ El chocolate de Abuelita
Abuela’s visits from Mexico are always full of excitement for young Sabrina. She can’t wait to see what’s in her grandmother’s yellow suitcase covered in stickers from all the places she has visited. Inside are a host of riches: colorful ribbons, a clay whistle shaped like a bird, a drum, and the strong smell of chocolate.

With her grandmother’s help, Sabrina learns all about the history and customs of the native peoples of Mexico. This includes the traditional garment known as the huipil, and the source of chocolate, the cacao tree, which was first cultivated by the indigenous tribes.
