Award-Winning Latino Picture Books

Evelyn del Rey se muda

Meg Medina’s book Evelyn del Rey se muda is about best friends on moving day. It’s a wonderful portrait of the special bond children have when they know each other so, so well.  This is also a timely, reassuring story as children deal with the distance caused by Covid-19.


Imagina, from Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, is the story of the author’s journey of becoming a poet and then United States Poet Laureate.  The beautifully lyric text is also interactive as the author invites children to imagine his life and to imagine their own. The Spanish edition is new this year; the English edition Imagine is available too. We believe all children should read this inspiring, empowering book.
