All the Way to Havana
WRITTEN BY MARGARITA ENGLE, GODWIN BOOKS, MACMILLAN
TOGETHER, a boy and his parents drive to the city of Havana, Cuba, in their old family car. Along the way, they experience the sights and sounds of the streets—neighbors talking, musicians performing, and beautiful, colorful cars putt-putting and bumpety- bumping along. In the end, though, it's their old car, Cara Cara, that the boy loves best. Here's a joyful celebration of the Cuban people and their resourceful, innovative spirit.
