Mama and Papa Have a Store by Amelia Carling

A new Dial storyteller recreates her childhood in Guatemala<P>From the clip, clop of the milkmans mule in early morning to the clic, clac of her fathers abacus at night, a young girl tells about a day in her familys store and home in Guatemala City. Every day customers of many heritages -- speaking Spanish, Chinese, and Mayan -- come to buy cloth, buttons, and thread in colors like parrot green and mango yellow, and dozens of other items. While the girls parents and their friends talk about their hometown in China from where they emigrated many years ago, she and her siblings play games on the rooftop terrace, float paper boats, and make shadow puppets under the glow of flashlights. When the store closes, the girl dances to celebrate her day.
