Theme:Knowing how to determine the value of what is being traded is essential to striking a good bargain.

It’s early in the morning as vendors at the neighborhood Swap and Flea Market set up. LeVar's swap meet experiences set the stage for Saturday Sancocho, the feature book about a girl and her grandmother who barter eggs to get the ingredients they need for their traditional Saturday meal.

The fun of collecting and trading treasures is continued as we visit a baseball card collector as he trades cards and an auctioneer as she works an auction.
