Juan Felipe Herrera, Anita De Lucio-Brock
Grandma and Me at the Flea / Los Meros Meros Remateros
(Children's Book Press Feb. 20, 2002)
, Special Mono ed. edition
Every Sunday Juanito helps his grandmother sell old clothes at the flea market. Romping from booth to booth among the rainbow-colored tents under the sun, Juanito and his friends fulfill Grandma’s vision of the flea market as a sharing community of friendly give and take. With every trade and barter, Juanito learns firsthand what it means to be a true rematero — a flea marketeer — and discovers that the value of community can never be measured in dollars.
