The Wooden Bowl – El bol de madera
by Ramona Moreno Winner
Diego is ecstatic; he finds many similarities between himself and his grandfather.
Caring for an elderly parent becomes stressful for the adults and they begin exhibiting unkind behavior towards grandfather.
Diego teaches his parents a lesson on how to treat his aging grandfather.
The way the parents treat the grandfather now, is how Diego will be treating them when they become elderly and in need of care.
This bilingual story carries a message on respect for all generations.

"I am trying to promote global change
on how we treat our elderly.
I have written a lovely children's book titled:
The Wooden Bowl, El bol de madera
to call attention to this state of affairs.
Together we can make a difference."
