Yes! We Are Latinos

Yes We Are Latinos Book Cover Through fictional first-person poems and brief non-fiction prose, thirteen different Latino and Latina young people in the U.S., who have diverse backgrounds and experiences are introduced to readers.  The poems are reflective and heartwarming and provide specific stories.  The nonfiction essays explain historical and social context, the Ladino language, the Chinese and Japanese presence in Latin America, African roots, Latino immigration to the U.S., U.S.-Cuban relations, environmentalists, and more. Bold, hand-cut illustrations, a bibliography for teachers and parents, and additional resources for young people complete this celebration of the diversity of the Latino community. mjw
