Blanca and Rosa are grownup sisters with big hearts who live in their own homes on the same street as their beloved mamá. They each have a large garden overflowing with delicious vegetables. Without telling one another, the two generous sisters begin to bring baskets of vegetables—tomatoes, chiles and corn—to their mother. Soon, their mother’s house is bursting with vegetables! This zany, heart-warming story is chuck-full of the kind of mishaps kids enjoy. The vibrant illustrations of Blanca, Rosa, Mamá and the colorful vegetable garden help to bring the story alive. Best of all, the book is completely bilingual, with paragraphs and dialogue side by side in English and Spanish, for all to enjoy.
