"Chicken Soup for the Latino Soul: Celebrating La Comunidad Latina is a collection of powerful stories and poems written by people from all over the country. They are stories about family, loyalty to our parents, the wisdom of our grandparents, the deep sense of faith in the community, and so much more.. The stories will make you laugh, they'll make you cry and if you're like me, you'll finish the book with an even greater sense of Latino strength and pride" -Catherine Anaya, Latino Perspectives Magazine
As with all of the Chicken Soup books, this one is a collection of short stories, poems, cartoons and quotations. The book is divided into chapters including Our Living Heritage, The Love of Family and Latino Identity. The 300 plus pages of text seem effortless to conquer in a single night since the stories are so short, yet so powerful. While many stories will make you laugh, the majority will leave you reaching for a tissue. Canfield, Hansen and Sánchez-Casal have successfully compiled a selection of stories that tug at your heartstrings and make you stop to appreciate your own family and roots. - Rebecca Burkeen, Latin Beat Magazine
