A young girl in El Salvador goes to the market with her father and helps her family obtain necessities by trading a precious item of her own

Review
Books for Youth, Easy Reading: Gr. 1-3. Growing up in El Salvador, Maria understands that her father can work for neither the government nor the guerrillas without reprisals from the other side. Now they must barter their handiwork and their furniture for food. Going to market with her father, she takes along her stuffed bear Paco. When Papa leaves Maria in charge, she finds the courage to make good trades, even letting her beloved Paco go in exchange for the food her family needs. A glossary is provided for Spanish words used in the text, although generally their meanings are clear from the context, at least when they first appear. Libraries looking for more contemporary stories reflecting other cultures will find this a good choice for young readers, particularly for those who know a little Spanish.
