Grade 2-4–This story spills over with life, laughter, food, and music. A girl arrives at her aunts' house to spend a Saturday. She's met at the door by Tía Dulce, who soon has her in the kitchen up to her elbows in flour, making meat empanadas. As the pastries go into the oven, glamorous Tía Rosa whisks Isabel upstairs for a beauty and dress-up session. Fully made up and attired in colorful clothing, jewelry, and Rosa's high heels, the girl is ready for some dancing. It's a good thing that her energetic Tía Clara gets home just in time to give her some salsa lessons. The party leads up to the appearance of the empanadas hot out of the oven. The full-page illustrations are bold and vibrant, depicting beautiful Latinas enjoying one another's company. Recipes for empanadas de carne
