Tia Lola is going back to school in this Spanish translation of How Tia Lola Learned to Teach!

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?

    " Not nearly as enjoyable as the first Tia Lola story, but very upbeat. Alvarez does a great job portraying realistic characters in realistic settings. Two big questions in this story: Will Miguel accept Carmen AND will Tia Lola be deported? "

    " Tia Lola volunteers at the school to teach Spanish. Everything goes wonderfully until a letter from immigration arrives. Lots of wise sayings in both English and Spanish. #bookaday "
