What would you do if both of your grandpas were visiting, but they couldn’t talk to each other?
Abuelo speaks Spanish. Opa speaks German. They can’t talk to each other, so there is a lot of silence when they visit.
But they both play the accordion, and music is a universal language!
Hear Dr. Michael Genhart read his book, Accordionly: Abuelo and Opa Make Music, aloud. He also talks about his family, how families can blend and celebrate cultures, and suggests a family tree activity.
