Tia Isa quiere un carro

author: Meg Medina

illustrator: Claudio Munoz

Tía Isa quiere un carro brillante que sea del mismo color verde del océano. Pero el dinero no alcanza, sobre todo porque lo que ganan se divide en dos partes: una para gastar aquí y otra para enviar a la familia que vive lejos, con la esperanza de verse algún día nuevamente.
Mientras tía Isa raciona el dinero, su sobrina trata de ayudar con los ahorros en su propia forma. ¿Pero podrán ahorrar lo suficiente para un carro?


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 bring family members who live far away to join them someday. 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 little girl pitches in to help her tía save up for a car and take the whole family to the beach.
