My Way / A mi manera - Cover
My Way / A mi manera
Lynn Reiser, Greenwillow Books 2007
Two young girls, Margarita and Margaret, are best friends, but they each like to do things in their own unique manner (a mi manera!). This is who they are, and they like themselves and each other. But sometimes , they like to do thing (a tu manera!) the way that the other does. Across language, culture, and personality- they are always best friends.

Dos niñas, Margarita y Margaret, son mejores amigas, pero a cada una de ellas le gusta hacer las cosas de una manera unica: “a mi manera.” Esto representa quienes son, y se aprecian a sí mismas y a los demás. Pero a veces, les gusta hacer las cosas como lo hace la otra: “a tu manera.” Traspasando diferencias de idioma, de cultura y de personalidad, Margarita y Margaret siempre son las mejores amigas.
