  • Econ Kids

    While numerous picture books have addressed the topic of saving, Tía Isa Wants a Car stands apart with its additional focus on immigration and remittances. Reflecting the economic reality of numerous Latinas in the United States, Tía Isa immigrated to the U.S. but still sends money home to support her family. The expressive illustrations and inclusion of Spanish dialogue add to the book’s appeal and make it an excellent addition to any collection of picture books with substantive content.
