Miguel’s family moved from New York City to Vermont. His Aunt, Tia Lola, came to live with them and to help his mother.
But Miguel didn’t like the way his aunt usually acted.
Her feelings were very sensitive.
That night, a snowstorm closed Miguel’s school. He and his sister will stay home with Tia Lola that day.
Miguel’s mother said that Tia Lola was homesick and didn’t feel welcomed. Miguel felt the same at school, too. So he knew what it felt like. He decided to do something. He learned the Spanish word for welcome.
homesick – prepared – included - sensitive
He asked Juanita, his sister, to help him. She loved to be included in her brother’s great ideas. Then he went outside and started to make marks in the snow.
While he was working, Miguel remembered his father. His father is a painter. Painting makes his father happy. So Miguel thought that the art he was doing would make Tia Lola happy.
He finished and went inside. Tia Lola prepared a special pizza with lots of cheese. Miguel named the pizza “Pizza Tia Lola”.
When they finished eating, Miguel told Tia Lola that he had a surprise for her in the backyard. Miguel took her upstairs to a window.
She looked outside and saw the large letters that Miguel made in the snow. Tia Lola was very happy.
