Dr. Julia López-Robertson makes a case for infusing our classrooms with literature by a range of Latinx authors and illustrators- voices that reflect our students' experiences and provide a window into the cultures of people from Spanish-speaking countries and communities. She shows how to identify quality literature by checking for bias, stereotypes, and cultural and linguistic authenticity. From there, she explores how to put the literature to work in whole-class lessons, read-alouds, small group discussions, and writing projects to nurture engaged readers. Foreword by Sonia Nieto.

“A splendid resource that readers will turn to time and again for ideas, inspiration, and support.” – SONIA NIETO, Professor Emerita, College of Education, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

"No other book addresses in such detail how to select Latinx literature, which provides mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors for all children." – PATRICIA EDWARDS, Professor of Language and Literacy, Michigan Sate University
