This is the bilingual (English/Spanish) version of Grandma's Pear Tree. The Spanish is sprinkled in and as each word is introduced, it is used from there thru to the end of the book. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book.Jessie’s ball is stuck in Grandma’s prized pear tree. Worried that Grandma will be mad, Jessie tries to get the ball down by asking for help from busy relatives before Grandma sees the problem. From a shoe to a chicken, each suggestion only seems to make the problem worse. With no other choice, Jessie finally admits to Grandma what has happened. In the end, Jessie learns that working together is best to solve a problem and that family is there to support you when you need them.
