Waiting in line with her mother at the post office, little Margarita greets every stranger who passes by, only to be ignored. By the time she reaches the front of the line, she has become so dejected that she doesn't even hazard a smile at the postal clerk, so she is pleasantly surprised when the postal clerk greets her first! Glo Coalson's watercolor paintings aptly capture a Latina toddler's many moods, expressed through body postures and facial expressions.
