Reading for Hispanic Heritage Month

I’m late posting, but I did read these books the past month:

Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan
Mexican Folk Tales by Anthony John Campos
Tales Our Abuelitas Told Us: A Hispanic Folktale Collection by F. Isabel Campoy and Alma Flor Ada, Illustrated by Felipe Dávalos, Viví Escrivá, Susan Guevara, and Leyla Torres
Horse Hooves and Chicken Feet: Mexican Folktales, Selected by Neil Philip, Illustrated by Jacqueline Mair
Fiesta Femenina: Celebrating Women in Mexican Folktales by Mary-Joan Gerson, Illustrated by Maya Christina Gonzalez

As you can see I’ve been interested in Mexican folktales. These stories are fascinating! And the illustrations in the last three books are gorgeous! I highly recommend all these titles.

Next on my reading list:

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez (finally!)
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova
