Hispanic Heritage Month began this week and I loved sharing these amazing titles with kindergarten, first, and second grade. Pairing stories of Hispanic families and culture along with the fantastic addition of Spanish class here at OQS makes for a more authentic experience for our young readers to fully appreciate this vibrant heritage.
Lucia the Luchadora was definitely the favorite (mine, too!), and now I’m going to have buy the sequel to keep up with the demand! Lucia is an awesome, confident, dynamic character that all the kids loved! I wouldn’t be surprised if we have a few luchadoras or luchadores at OQS this Halloween!
Check out my entire book display, including novels and non-fiction, on my Instagram! I noticed as I was making this display that I don’t have nearly enough novels that celebrate Hispanic culture. If you have any recommendations, please let me know!
