Grade 3-5-This book offers an exceptional sampling of Latin American literature ranging from pre-Columbian legends, folktales, poetry, and riddles to biographies and excerpts of work by renowned contemporary authors such as Isabel Allende and Rudolfo Anaya. Perfect for read-alouds, this collection will captivate all audiences as each selection lasts 10 minutes or less. It will also serve as an excellent reference for teachers and librarians during Hispanic Heritage month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15) or when planning any event focusing on Latino culture.
