Local owner and operator of his family's restaurants, Someburros and Isabel's Amor, Tim Vasquez shares his debut children' s book, a story of hard work and the love of family.
The story explores what happens when Isabel, known throughout Phoenix for her sensational, crave-able tacos, gets an offer to take those tacos mainstream and open a franchise, but the offer comes at the expense of time with family. As Isabel mulls her options and debates exactly just how much family time is truly worth, young readers will develop a better understanding of the fact that there are some things in life you simply can't put a price on.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
TIM VASQUEZ's casual, easy-to-read writing style has collided with his vast life experiences to create his first book, The Taco Stand
. Growing up in the kitchen of his parents' Mexican restaurant in Tempe, Arizona has provided him the impetus for the book. Tim is the owner and operator of his family's restaurants, Someburros and Isabel's Amor, where he strives each and every day to honor the legacy of his Nana Isabel and Tata Poncho. Tim's love of baseball and working with young children led him to host free baseball clinics for the underprivileged boys and girls of Guadalupe, Arizona, where his family has deep roots. This is what sparked his passion for giving back. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Frank Elementary School in Guadalupe to give children who come from humble beginnings the ability to rise up, succeed and even pay it forward someday.
