Just wanted to remind you that our sister site, the Latin Baby Book Club, has some new book reviews up this month, including Escucha Means Listen, Jungle Tales, and Tamalitos: A Cooking Poem. As part of our commitment to our movement Latinas for Latino Children's Literature, we are venturing into eBooks, as well as print books. I want to especially call your attention to the book, Jungle Tales, by Horacio Quiroga as this book is required reading for most elementary students throughout Latin America. It is now available in English for the first time. We have LOVED reading it, but make sure you read the review as there are a couple of things parents should consider before buying the book.
I'm happy to be focusing on the LBBC once again (last year most book reviews were published here on MommyMaestra instead). But I do want to put out a call to you for submissions. If you have a favorite book that falls under the category of Latino children's literature, we'd love for you to write up a short piece sharing your thoughts on the book so that other Latino parents might benefit and purchase it if they so choose. You can enter the title in the search bar on the LBBC to see if we've already posted a review. And if you'd like to submit one, just contact me.
