    Book of the Week: ‘Tia Isa Wants a Car’

    This week's featured book is "Tia Isa Wants A Car’’, by Meg Medina. (Published Tuesday, July 23, 2019)

    This week's featured book is "Tia Isa Wants A Car" by Meg Medina.

    This book, perfect for students in the 2nd and 3rd grades, is one filled with fun and learning.

    From the publisher:

    While Tía Isa wants to save money for a car that will take the whole family to the beach, her niece does odd jobs for neighbors. But it’s hard to save enough when half the money is set aside to someday bring family members who live far away to join them. Meg Medina’s simple, genuine story about keeping in mind those who are far away is written in lovely, lyrical prose and brought to life through Claudio Muñoz’s charming characters.

    NBC 5's Reading With You is a 9-week reading initiative encouraging elementary-aged children to read at least one book a week throughout the summer to help combat summer learning loss, often referred to as the "summer slide."

    Each week, NBC 5 is highlighting a book from our online reading list compiled with the help of Reading Partners North Texas.

    Reading Partners North Texas mobilizes communities to provide students with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by 4th grade.
