Books for Hispanic Heritage Month

October 7th, 2010 by

Have you ever heard of a month that runs from September 15 to October 15? Well, now you have — it’s Hispanic Heritage Month! It starts on September 15 because that’s the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Plus Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.

So, for our celebration here at Kidsmomo, I’ve put together this handy dandy list of great reads for Hispanic Heritage Month! Or should I say buenos libros para Hispanic Heritage Month? Actually, no I shouldn’t, because you can’t hear me right now, but I’m pretty sure I have TERRIBLE Spanish pronunciation.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t pick out awesome books! And here they are:

Have you read any of these books? Leave a comment and let me know! Or better yet, submit your review for other kids to see!

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!

Karen took Spanish class in high school, but unfortunately, she doesn’t remember much of it. What sticks in her mind most is that every time she read about Chichen Itza, she thought to herself, “chicken pizza.”
