Stories from the Barrio: Hispanic Heritage
For kids growing up in the big city, there is a new adventure just around the corner every day. Perhaps it is a good kind of adventure, like getting some help from a neighbor or taking the subway to a concert downtown. And perhaps it is a scarier adventure, like losing your dog or seeing the tougher side of the city.
These books capture adventures of all kinds in el barrio (the neighborhood), celebrating the resilience and ingenuity of city kids and the loving communities who raise them.
