Tía Isa wants a car with a green coat that reminds her of the color of the ocean, but it will be a long time before she can buy one. Even though Isa works hard at the bakery, most of her savings are used to help her family back home. While Tía Isa saves, her young niece helps to raise money around the neighborhood. Together, they are able to afford their dream car to carry the entire familia to the beach. Medina’s simple but endearing story mirrors the experiences of numerous Latino immigrants in the United States and Muñoz’s muted illustrations paint the back story of a family split apart by immigration, serving as a great conversation piece for young children. Recommended.
