Best Books for Latino Kids

Mid-September kicked off a month-long celebration known as National Hispanic Heritage Month and we were thrilled to see all of the activities and reading happening in honor of this observance.

National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15 and it’s a time to celebrate and recognize all of the amazing accomplishments and achievements of Hispanic Americans in history.

This observance always brings forth a plethora of great Latinx-themed booklists for parents, teachers, and young readers, and last month we shared a Hispanic Heritage Month Kidlit to Add to Your TBR List. BUT, now, it’s a bright shiny new month and we want to kick off a book-filled October with even more great book recommendations. Enjoy!
