Los estudiantes están cansados de comer espaguetis con albóndigas los lunes en la cafetería. La administración de la escuela dice que pueden ayudar a crear un nuevo menú, así que todos preparan puestos con las especialidades de su familia para ver cuáles recetas lograrán formar parte del menú escolar.
The Spanish edition of Sarai Around the World!
The students are sick and tired of Spaghetti-and-Meatball Mondays in the cafeteria. The administration says they can help create a new menu, so students throughout the school make booths with their family's specialties for Around-the-World Day. It's a head-to-head battle between Sarai's Peruvian chicken and Valeria's tamales. Who will win the big cook-off and get their grandparents' recipes on the cafeteria menu?
