Description
Saturdays are special days for Isabel. She spends the day with her lively aunts who shower her with love and special attention. As Isabel enters her aunts' house one Saturday morning, she is greeted by Tia Dulce and the savory scent of cinnamon. Isabel wonders what she will learn to cook today. After Isabel helps Tia Dulce make a special snack, Tia Rosa and Isabel steal away for a special beauty hour. Tia Rosa's closet and jewelry box are a treasure trove full of fancy shoes, dresses, make-up, and jewelry. When she's all dressed up, Isabel runs to her Tia Clara who exclaims, "You're dressed for dancing!" Together they twirl to the rhythm of the music, working up an appetite for their special afternoon snack. With vibrant illustrations by Christina Rodriguez, Isabel's day with her aunts will delight children ages 3-7 who will identify with time spent learning and laughing with loving relatives. And for those children--and adults too--who want to make their own special afternoon snack, Un dia con mis tias / A Day with My Aunts contains a recipe for meat empanadas in both English and Spanish.
