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.

Text: English, SpanishFrom Booklist:
Ages 4-8. Juanito doesn't mind getting up at five o'clock on Sunday mornings. That's when he and Grandma Esperanza drive to the open-air flea market where, over the years, they have sold wares, and Esperanza has guided and translated for new immigrants and offered recipes, poems, comfort, and massages to tired workers. As Juanito runs happily through the stalls with his friends, the vendors repay Esperanza's kindnesses with gifts of their own--belts, fruit, jewelry, blankets--which Juanito offers to Esperanza at the story's end. The overt messages about giving, receiving, and reuse (there's no money exchanged) are balanced by the lyrical bilingual text (both languages on each spread) that celebrates the energy and warmth of the "soft city of tents and woolly walls." The parrot-colored paintings are somewhat amateurish in their rendering of people, but their folk-art details--the smiling suns and vibrantly patterned blankets--add appeal. A sunny glimpse of a Hispanic community. Gillian Engberg
