When Armida and her family set out for Mexico City to visit Abuela (grandmother) the big train they board is shiny and fast.
Armida is excited!
Perhaps the train will stop at the Magic Circle. Abuela told them all about this wonderful place where the Monarch Butterflies spend the winter.
Mama doesn’t think the train will stop there, so Armida takes her colored pencils out to practice her drawing. She works hard to capture the beauty of these amazing creatures, just like the one Abuela had sent the girls in her letter.
But Armida couldn’t get it right. She needed Abuela’s help.
Hopefully, her parents could convince Abuela to come live with them.
The trip took days and was only made longer when the last train they boarded came to a squealing smokey stop.
