HOW TÍA LOLA CAME TO VISIT STAY
When Miguel’s Tía Lola comes from the Dominican Republic to Vermont to help out his mami, Miguel is worried that his unusual aunt will make it even more difficult to make new friends. It’s been hard enough moving from New York City and leaving Papi behind. Sometimes he wishes Tía Lola would go back to the island. But then he wouldn’t have the treats she’s putting in his lunch box, which he’s sure helped him make the baseball team. And she really needs his help to learn English. So Miguel changes his wish to a new one, and he finally even figures out a clever way to make it come true.

HOW TÍA LOLA LEARNED TO TEACH
Tía Lola has been invited to teach Spanish at her niece and nephew’s elementary school. But Miguel wants nothing to do with the arrangement. On the other hand, Miguel’s little sister, Juanita, can’t wait to introduce her colorfully dressed aunt to all her friends at school—that is, if she can stop getting distracted long enough. Before long, Tía 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?
