Miss Pecosita is invited on an unusual adventure: today, she's going to help her mother at work. Miss Pecosita is very excited. Miss Pecosita and Mama Blanquita take the bus into the big city. Miss Pecosita has never been on a bus before. She sees the tall buildings, hears the construction workers and car horns, and smells the cafecito. On the streets, people set up their stands and sell all sorts of items and foods. A businessman even trades emeralds

After Miss Pecosita and Mama Blanquita set up their stand on the street corner, Mama Blanquita tries to sell her ties of all styles and colors. As Miss Pecosita watches her mother, she sees how courageous she is when approaching businessmen on their lunch breaks-one finds the perfect tie for a special occasion-and how strong she is as she holds all her ties on her arm. They may only sell a couple ties, but daughter and mother work hard and remain cheerful.

Set in the bustling city of Bogot , Colombia, Miss Pecosita's Day at Work follows a young daughter and her single mother as they bond over a day at work. Extra discussion questions allow young readers to reflect on cultural differences, helping others, and their own futures. This book is part of a wonderful series that follows more adventures of Miss Pecosita.
