Book Review


Waking up one winter morning to find that the entire world is covered in snow, the twins Carlos and Carmen run outside as quickly as possible to begin building a snow cat. Uncle Alex pulls up in his car and a snowball fight ensues. Mom makes them all hot chocolate, just the way they like it, to warm up before going back out to play in the snow. Although playing in the snow is fun, the real reason Uncle Alex comes over is to share his secret recipe with the twins. The clues they have about the secret recipe, that it has cheese and sausage, keeps the twins full of guesses until dinner is served and the surprise is revealed.
