Latino Children’s Literature Celebrating Thanksgiving

Just two more weeks until Thanksgiving, so with bilingual families in mind, we wanted to share with you four books centered around the holiday and the act of giving thanks. Because we Latinos come from such a family-centered community, there’s no doubt that Thanksgiving is one of our favorites. So imagine our surprise to find very few picture books with this theme! Below are three books by some of our favorite authors, plus a new one that came out this year.
