Student Saturdays: Day's Work - Eve Bunting

Student Reviewer:  Madison            

 From Goodreads:

Francisco, a young Mexican-American boy, helps his grandfather find work as a gardener, even though the old man cannot speak English and knows nothing about gardening.

 Student’s Thoughts:
 Have you ever been poor?  Well in the book just because you are poor doesn’t mean anything bad.  You figure out just because you are desperate does not mean to lie.  You must tell the truth always.

This book is mostly about a grandson and a grandfather trying to find work, so they can eat every night.  A van pulls up with work.  The little boy lies just to get work.  He says his grandfather is an excellent gardener.  If you are looking for a good book, read this one.  Find out what happens with this lie.
