Description

 Julia Alvarez’s heartwarming novels – now in Spanish – appear here a two audio collection from the Tia Lola series. 
                                
De Cómo Tía Lola Vino (de Visita) a Quedarse: Moving to Vermont after his parents split, Miguel has plenty to worry about! Tía Lola, his quirky, carismática, and maybe magical aunt makes his life even more unpredictable when she arrives from the Dominican Republic to help out his Mami. Like her stories for adults, Julia Alvarez’s first middle-grade book sparkles with magic as it illuminates a child’s experiences living in two cultures.

De Cómo Tía Lola Aprendió a Enseñar : Tia Lola has been invited to teach Spanish at her niece and nephew's elementary school, but Miguel wants nothing to do with it. He hasn't had an easy time adjusting to his new school in Vermont and doesn't like living so far away from Papi, who has a new girlfriend and an announcement to make. Miguel's little sister Juanita, on the other hand, can't wait to introduce her colorfully dressed aunt to all of her friends at school--that is, if she can stop getting distracted long enough to remember to do so. Before long, Tia Lola is organizing a Spanish treasure hunt and a carnaval fiesta at school. Will Miguel be willing to join the fun? Will Juanita get her head out of the clouds and lead her classmates to victory in the treasure hunt?
