Illustrated by Barbara Mathews Whitehead. Carla Maria is chosen to present flowers to her grandmother, singer Rosita Fernandez, when a stone bridge over the San Antonio River to a stage where Rosita often performed is named Rosita's Bridge. In this true story, she finds out why Rosita's bridge is called not just a bridge across a river, but a bridge between cultures. Carl Maria also discovers the appeal of San Antonio's River Walk, which makes the setting of this story known around the world.
