Note: 
Pablo's mother is a Latina and his father is Jewish. Together, they own a bakery which his mother calls a panaderia. When Pablo has to bring some food from his culture to school, he ponders his choices from among the delicious treats his parents make and decides on jalapeno bagels, "Because they are a mixture of both of you. Just like me." A sweet story, cheerfully illustrated, this takes a very positive look at an intermarried family, omitting any discussion of religious differences or practices and emphasizing the positive nature of ethnic diversity.
