ONE MILLION WORDS!
Joliz has always been a good reader. When she graduated from kindergarten, she was the narrator for the school graduation play and she was only 6! She reads half an hour every day. Something her parents and I endorse whole heartedly.
Of course, I am adding English books by Latino authors to her growing reading pile. The first, THE DREAMER by Pam Munoz Ryan, an illustrated story about Pablo Neruda’s childhood. She loved it, and we had our own mini-book club discussion.
I am looking for other age appropriate books by Latino authors. I welcome all suggestions.
And to all other budding readers out there… Read On. Read Latino.♥
