A Day's Work

by Eve Bunting

About this title: Francisco, a young Mexican American boy, tries to help his Mexican grandfather find work. The old man cannot speak English and knows nothing about gardening, but Francisco talks fast and gets him hired as a gardener. The resulting mistakes teach Francisco an important lesson about honesty.

An Honest Story about Honesty and Hard Work, Nov 23, 2008
by dlberek

"Let me begin by saying that I am a big fan of Eve Bunting and admire her for writing about people who otherwise receive little attention in stories. "A Day's Work" is worthy of that reputation. It is a story of day laborers from Mexico; moreover, it describes how the whole family pulls together to make ends meet (a theme that Francisco Jimenez beautifully explores in "The Circuit/Cajas de Carton). Though it's a simple story, there are several surprise twists. As with her other stories, Eve Bunting tells this one with her characteristic sensitivity without indulging in, you know, the mushy stuff. This book will enable children and adults alike to take a new look at honesty and, as the title says, a day's work."
