Just got back from the fabulous Shenandoah Children’s Literature Conference, and I am wrapping up loose ends for some of the participants.
As promised, here are the websites of Latino children’s lit that I mentioned in my talk.
- The summer reading list here via Latinas for Kid Lit.
- Here is an excellent blog, complete with a hefty list of resources to help you find the latest work by Latino authors. Latin@s in Kid Lit
- This general tween boy list appeared on the lovely blog, Read Brightly. Saw it on Facebook today, so I’m sharing.
- Don’t forget to look through the Pura Belpré winners, the Tomás Rivera winners, and the Las Américas list for titles and resources.
I will get back to those of you who didn’t get the book talking kits that We Need Diverse Books provided. (They went like hot cakes with the librarians!)
And finally, just to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt why I love pastelitos de guayaba, here is a photo of these heavenly treats. My son is dating a young woman who has a Cuban dad. (Hay que darle gracias al señor…) They sent this yummy box of treats today from New Jersey. Thank you Louis, Mary, and Lauren!
