About the Book

The first day of school can be scary, especially when no one else speaks your language. Luckily Carmen has help from her new teacher and friends.

Carmen, who speaks only Spanish, knows she must be brave. Her teacher’s Spanish is muy terrible; but with a little encouragement from la Señora, Carmen teaches the class Spanish words and numbers,and she in turn learns English from her new friends. Carmen helps her little sister learn English too!
