Continuing our mission of promoting literacy to improve lives, L4LL honors Latino contributions to the U.S. in history, politics, public service, the arts, and sports through autobiographies and biographies for L4LL Hispanic Heritage Month: Festival of Books.
The heart of Festival of Books are the original and free reading lists–one curated for adults and one for children in kindergarten through 4th grade.
Additionally, families and educators who would like to teach or learn more about Latino contributions to the U.S. can buy one of our original and pedagogically designed L4LL Hispanic Heritage Month: Festival of Books Reading Kits at the L4LL Bookshop. The kits introduce children to historical figures — such as civil rights activists Cesar Chávez and Dolores Huerta, salsa queen Celia Cruz, and librarian and literacy advocate Pura Belpré — through biographies and reading and writing-centered activity worksheets. The kits are designed for children in kindergarten through the 4th grade.
