Remarkable Latino Children’s Literature of 2013

By Latinas For Latino Literature

Remarkable Latino Children's Literature 2013It certainly appears as though we’ve come full circle. This month, Latinas for Latino Lit celebrates it’s first anniversary. What a year we’ve had! And to think that it all began with an article in the New York Times by Motoko Rich on Latino students’ lack of access to books that reflect their culture and experience.

So we were especially disappointed when the NYT released its annual list of Notable Children’s Books last week without a single title written by or about Latinos…again. We have more to say on this topic, so look for another response from us soon. But we want to start off by sharing our own list of Remarkable Latino Children’s Literature with extraordinary titles written and/or illustrated by Latinos that were released in 2013. Perhaps the New York Times should ask us for suggestions next year?

  • Quote of the Day

    “One dies slowly who becomes a slave to habits, takes no chances, avoids passion, does not risk uncertainty . . . who quits before getting started, complains about bad luck, doesn’t travel or read or dream, does not trust, does not dare try, does not love . . . the opposite is to be alive.”

    - Pablo Neruda
