Q: Hi Maya, what are your favorite
stories and games? Can you send me a postcard, I am from Santo Domingo but live in the US. — JOYCE
DISLA, 9, Los Estados Unidos
Maya: Dear Joyce, I really like mysteries and fairy tales. I like mysteries, because
you never know what’s going to happen. Fairy tales are nice because they always end happily ever
after and things should always end up that way. I love to play soccer with Miguel, because he’s
so good. Maggie, Chrissy, and I play a lot of cards and board games. Oh, and Paco and I always do the
limbo, while Abuela and Miguel hold the stick. We all take turns of course.
Q: Hi Maya, my name is Gabby. I have a older Brother just like Miguel. I was wondering what it
is like with your parents working at the pet shop? Is it fun? — Gabby, 7, MA
Maya: Dear Gabby, I love that my parents own a pet shop. It’s a lot of fun, but
it’s a lot of work too. I can’t always play with the animals. I have to help my parents feed
them and pick up after them too!
Q: Hi Maya, I'm Ashley. My question to you: what is your goal in life? — Ashley,
Maya: Dear Ashley, I have a lot of goals. I think it would be great to be a doctor,
because I would be able to help people feel better. Being a science teacher would be cool too! I
would do wild experiments and wear goggles and a lab coat. It would be great, because I would be
teaching kids about the wonders of science. I’ve also entertained the thought of being a
talk show host. I would help people by talking with them about their problems, and I would be able
to reunite long lost family members.
Q: Hola maya! Have you ever gotten mad at Paco or any of your amigos? I have a 6
year old brother and he always drives me crazy! — Emily, 9, Mississippi
Maya: Dear Emily, I’ve never been mad at Paco. Chrissy, Maggie, and I have
been mad at each other before, but it was about something silly and we got over it real fast. Miguel
and I get mad at each other. Miguel definitely gets mad at me more than I do at him. He gets
over it too pretty quickly. He can’t resist my charm!
Q: Dear Maya, why do u like Valentine's day. — Amy, 9, California
Maya: Dear Amy, I love Valentine’s Day! It’s a great day to show all the people
in your life how much you love them. I like to make little cards for all of my family and friends and
– and even Paco!
Q: Do you speak French. — Jason, 9, North Carolina
Maya: Dear Jason, I don’t speak French – at least not yet! I’d love to learn
how to speak it one day. I might take French in school when I get a little older. I think learning a
language is a lot of fun. It’s great because you can talk to lots of new people and learn all about
different parts of the world.
