“Families of Puerto Rico” introduces nine-year-old Jose, who lives with his mother, father and sister Tanya, in the capital city of San Juan. A hurricane is on its way, so Jose and his family are making preparations while still going about their day, which includes school for
Jose and his sister, and work for their parents. Jose shares the history of his homeland’s name (the island of Borinquen, renamed Puerto Rico by the Spanish after a visit and claiming by Columbus), what “good manners” mean in his country and his desire to be a veterinarian when he grows up.
Eight-year-old Laura, lives on a farm with her mother and father. She attends private school more than an hour away, learning both English and Spanish while her parents work. She talks about her weekly piano lesson and introduces her pet Coquis frog. Later she visits the world’s largest radio telescope to listen to radio waves from outer space, and reads before turning in for the day.
