Gabriela Morales Mercado (Gabí), a spunky third-grader, is introduced
in this new series. She speaks English at school and Spanish at home, but
tends to confuse the two languages when she gets “super-stressed.” Gabí’s
main problem is her classmate Johnny who teases her until she loses her
temper. Her first solution to this problem is using her favorite red boots,
but her grandmother inspires her to use her head and not her feet. Spanish
words and phrases are interwoven naturally throughout the text, but a glossary
is included for those readers who need additional help. (Sunshine
