Finally getting back on track, up early today to work on this awesome list and then headed to the Princeton Children’s Literature Festival for the day… can’t wait! A side note, many of these titles focus on Mexican or Mexican American characters and although there are some on the list from other Hispanic countries, those titles are more difficult to come across.
