La Visita del Sr. Azucar / Mr. Sugar Came to Town

La Visita del Sr. Azucar / Mr. Sugar Came to Town Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grandma Lupe's tamales are the favorite food of all the children in town until Mr. Sugar comes riding in on his magical truck full of sweets. Suddenly the children won't eat anything but double-chocolate sundaes, raspberry cream pie, and fudge bars. Before long they're so roly-poly they can't see their feet, and their teeth are full of black holes! It falls to Grandma Lupe to unmask Mr. Sugar and to show the children why something that feels good may not be good for them. Adapted from a puppet play by the Migrant Farmworkers Outreach Program in California's Central Valley, this fanciful tale treats the themes of substance abuse and nutrition in an amusing, whimsical way.

Synopsis:

Mr. Sugar rides into town in his magic sugar truck, but Grandma Lupe unmasks him for the villian that he is. Bilingual in English and Spanish.
