Tia Isa Wants a Car
author: Meg Medina
illustrator: Claudio Munoz
While Tía Isa wants to save money for a car that will take the whole family to the beach, her niece does odd jobs for neighbors. But it’s hard to save enough when half the money is set aside to someday bring family members who live far away to join them. Meg Medina’s simple, genuine story about keeping in mind those who are far away is written in lovely, lyrical prose and brought to life through Claudio Muñoz’s charming characters.
“A pleasant selection about ambition, resourcefulness, and never letting go of one’s dreams.” — School Library Journal
