Emergency quarters / story by Carlos Matias ; art by Gracey Zhang.

Matias, Carlos, (author.). Zhang, Gracey, (illustrator.).


"Ernesto has waited his whole life to become a niƱo grande. A big boy. Now he's finally old enough to walk the six blocks to school without his parents. Every morning, his mom hands him a shiny new quarter and reminds him they're for emergencies. If Ernesto needs her, she's only a pay phone call away. But each day reveals a tempting new treat to enjoy with his friends: crisp packs of baseball cards, arcade games, hot tamales, and fresh juices! Ernesto has the coins jingling in his pocket, so how will he choose to spend them?"-- Provided by publisher.
