Come along for a day of exploring the sights and sounds of Argentina from morning light to city night. Snack on medialunas, count the stalls at la feria and ride the caballito on the carousel. Argentinian author and illustrator Aixa Pérez-Prado and Mariana Ruiz Johnson (Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes, Run Little Chaski!, The Last Hazlenut) draw on their lived experiences in Argentina to create an authentic picture of modern Argentinian life as part of the Our World series for very young readers.
