Jalapeno Bagels by Natasha Wing
Los Bagels inspired local author, Natasha Wing, to write this wonderful children's story. Pablo, the main character of the story, can't decide what to take to school for International Day. The bakery, his parents own, makes his Mexican mother's empanadas and pan dulce, but also serves his Jewish father's bagels and challah. As he helps his parents bake, he comes up with the perfect multi-cultural choice.
