It happens all the time. As soon as the car pulls away, someone needs the bathroom.Where is un bano? Donde esta? I really do need one,” I told mi mama.After racing around town, passing a gushing fountain, and cutting the inevitable line for the ladies’ room, this adorable little girl makes it to the bathroom in the nick of time. And because the bathroom is in a restaurant, the family stays for a wonderful meal-and lots of limonada. . . .Buoyant illustrations and a clever mix of Spanish and English combine to capture the urgency and humor of the situation to the delight of kids and grown-ups alike.
