Summaries and Reviews
Lupita, a young girl, wants to fly a papalote, or kite, but her family cannot afford to buy one, so her father helps her make a kite of her own. description: Product Description: A colorful bilingual picture book inspiring children to let their dreams soar

Lupita sits on the wooden steps of her house and stares into the sky. It is not a commercial airplane that holds her attention or even a bird bedecked in exotic plumes. No, it's none of these things. Lupita can't tear her eyes away from the colorful papalotes, or kites, that capture her attention. They dot the sky over her head, playing in the wind, and seeing them, Lupita dreams of having one of her own.

But when Lupita approaches her mother about buying one, her mother tells her that they cannot afford one of the beautiful toys. The family needs to save all of its money for school supplies and other must-haves. The kite remains in Lupita's mind, until with the help of her father, Lupita hatches a plan to make her very own. Finally, Lupita has a chance to let her dreams take flight.
