David Gonzalez's Cuentos: Tales from the Latino World
A great introduction to Latino literature and culture, Cuentos paints a vivid picture of the people and rich cultures of the Spanish-speaking world with colorful tales from the Caribbean, South America, and the Bronx. From the silly antics of the Puerto Rican anti-hero Juan Bobo to the mysterious dealings and powers of the Orishas in a suite of Afro-Cuban stories, these tales are filled with memorable characters, fantastic plots, and positive messages for children. Spanish is even sprinkled throughout the stories and songs in such a way that young audiences can repeat and retain their sound and meaning.
