The Garcia family is moving to a new house, and twins Carlos and Carmen do not want to leave their small, familiar home--especially since they do not understand why their father describes the new place as a one-tire house.
"It's the Fourth of July! That means fun, flags, and fireworks for the Garcia family. Unfortunately, those fireworks are a problem for Mama and Carlos. Neither of them likes the loud booms and cracks that come with the sparkles. Readers will laugh when they see how the twins figure out a way for everyone to enjoy the sparkly night"--Page 4 of cover.
"Fall leaves and pumpkins are everywhere. Carlos and Carmen are making plans to be in the costume contest. They both want to win, but neither of them wants the other to lose. It's a problem. A prize-winning problem! But with an old shirt, a pair of scissors, and a lot of creativity, the twins come up with a prize-winning solution." --
