A little girl pitches in to help her t#65533;a save up for a big old car - and take the whole family to the beach - in a story told with warmth and sweetness.
(Ages 3-7)

T#65533;a Isa wants a car. A shiny green car the same color as the ocean, with wings like a swooping bird. A car to take the whole family to the beach. But saving is hard when everything goes into two piles - one for here and one for Helping Money, so that family members who live far away might join them someday. While T#65533;a Isa saves, her niece does odd jobs for neighbors so she can add her earnings to the stack. But even with her help, will they ever have enough? 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 Mu#65533;oz's charming characters.
