Cuando Tu Camión Escolar Se Va a México

A Bilingual Book

Sara and her brother Jett are the last kids on their school bus the afternoon it breaks down on the road. While they wait for another bus to take them home, Joe, their bus driver, offers to tell the children a story–a story about an old school bus.

So begins When Your School Bus Goes to Mexico, a book that will delight and surprise you with its unexpected twists. Told in both English and Spanish, Joe’s story follows the journey of an old school bus as it travels south of the border.

Sara y su hermano Jett son los últimos niños en el camión de la escuela la tarde que éste se descompone en el camino. Mientras esperan a otro camión para que los lleve a casa, Joe, el chofer del camión, se ofrece a contarles una historia–una historia sobre un viejo camión escolar.

Así comienza Cuando Tu Camión Escolar Se Va a México, un libro que te deleitará y sorprenderá con sus inesperados cambios. Contada en ambos Inglés y Español, la historia de Joe sigue el viaje de un viejo camión escolar mientras va por el sur de la frontera.
