¡Sí! Somos latinos
Thirteen young Latinos and Latinas living in America are introduced in this book celebrating the rich diversity of the Latino and Latina experience in the United States. Free-verse fiction and nonfiction prose present the characters lives as well as important events in Latin American and Spanish history and culture.
Each profile is followed by nonfiction prose that further clarifies the character’s background and history, touching upon important events in the history of the Latino American and Spanish people, such as the Spanish Civil War, immigration to the US, and the internment of Latinos with Japanese ancestry during World War II. Caldecott Medalist David Diaz’s hand-cut illustrations are bold and striking, perfectly complementing the vibrant stories in the book.
