The Bakery Lady / La senora de la panaderia (English/Spanish)
Type of Product:
Mónica spends her life around a bakery, not just because she likes the sweets, but also because she loves her grandparents, the baker and the bakery lady. She watches the bustle of la panadería, and she knows that she will one day be the baker. Her first real test comes as she and her beloved grandparents prepare for the coming celebration of January sixth, El Día de los Reyes Magos, the Feats of the Three Kings. When Mónica finds the baby in the round bread ring, the King's Ring, it becomes her responsibility to plan the celebration: invitations, decorations, and most important of all, the lemon cookies that Mónica will bake especially for her family and friends. And though she wants to do it all herself, she realizes that the love and help of family can make any job a joy. In this delectable bilingual picture book, Pat Mora once again weaves a tale rich with tradition in which we become active participants in this wonderfully sweet world of la panadería. Childrens aged 3 to 7 will delight in the delicious sights and savory smells of la panadería and Mónica's quest to be the "Bakery Lady." 2001 11.3 x 8.8 32pp Ages 3-7.
