So pleased to announce that my new book– Dream Wakers, Mentor Texts That Celebrate Latino Culture— is now out and available across the country, from Stenhouse Publishers.
I encourage everyone to make sure students of all backgrounds have access to high-quality, culturally diverse texts and recognize the difference those texts will make in their reading lives, as well as in their perception of themselves as a thinkers, learners, and citizens.
Get your copy here or here, or at your favorite independent bookseller. Dive in and enjoy original essays from eleven renowned children’s book authors, do-it-today lesson plans, book lists, reference charts and much more.
You’ll fall in love–as I did– with some of the richest and most beautiful children’s books available, while you empower capable, confident writers to awaken their dreams and bring them to life on every page.
