2017

It's moving day. After a long morning of chores and unpacking, Jorge and his family--brother, sisters, mom and dad, and grandparents--have eaten a quick lunch, then gone back to emptying boxes. Soon Jorge is ready for a cookie break. But where is the cookie jar? Jorge sets out to find this family treasure, and the cookies he hopes it contains. Checking with family members one by one, he conducts a thorough search of the new house. Jorge finally finds the cookie jar and discovers how it got to its surprising location.
