AN OKRI-DOKEY DAY, #116 AN OKRI-DOKEY DAY, #116
When Maya realizes that their neighbors Greg and Isoka Okri don't have any children of their own, she concludes that their life must be horribly empty – after all, her parents are always saying how Maya and Miguel are the light of their life. So Maya engineers things so she and Miguel spend the better part of a weekend with the Okris. However, between roller coaster rides, kid-friendly restaurants, homemade facial treatments, and breakfast in bed, the Okris get a lot more than they bargained for.
Vocabulary words: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack
CHRISSY'S BIG MOVE, #117 CHRISSY'S BIG MOVE, #117
Maya's friend Chrissy discovers that her father has been transferred and is moving the whole family to Hong Kong. Chrissy is so distraught that she doesn't want to go. Eager to help her friend adjust to a very different culture, Maya enlists Miguel and the gang to "introduce" Chrissy to Hong Kong. They stage an imaginative (and homemade) "voyage" to show her a variety of interesting places: a restaurant that serves dim sum, a pink dolphin-watching cruise, and the dragon boat races. By the end, Chrissy is so enchanted that she can't wait to move to Hong Kong. Unfortunately, the transfer falls through... and Chrissy doesn't move. But at least "Las Tres Amigas” get to stay together!
Vocabulary words: move, moving, country, city
CAREER DAY, #118 CAREER DAY, #118
It’s Career Day in Maya and Miguel’s class, and each kid gets to spend a whole day with a classmate’s parent or grandparent as a “mentor.” While Miguel lucks into spending the day with an astronaut, Maya ends up with Mort, an insurance salesman who has lost his belief in himself. Maya takes it upon herself to find Mort a new career, but ultimately discovers that what he really needs is simply some help restoring his confidence.
Vocabulary words: salesman, repairman, astronaut
I'VE GOT TO BE MIGUEL, #119 I'VE GOT TO BE MI-GUEL, #119
Tito really admires his big cousin Miguel. So much so, in fact, that he begins to feel bad about himself – after all, Miguel does everything so well, it’s sometimes hard to measure up. But at Maya’s inadvertent suggestion, Tito realizes there is one way to be just as cool as Miguel: to imitate everything Miguel says, does, and wears, from his sneakers to his haircut. Miguel is flattered by this new “mini-Miguel,” but Maya gradually finds the whole thing annoying, and even more so because the flattery is clearly going to Miguel’s head. It’s only when Tito — in helping Maya and Miguel in an emergency — discovers some of his own talents that he goes back to being just plain Tito. Everyone is thrilled to have him back.
Vocabulary words: Opposites - big/small, short/tall
