Hispanic Awareness month is September 15th – October 15th. To celebrate in the library, classes are being read the story of Yuyi Morales, who wrote and illustrated her book DREAMERS. This is a book about her life and how she was born and raised in Mexico, and then immigrated to the United States with her son, Kelly, in 1994. At the time she barely spoke any English. Since then, she has written and/or illustrated many distinctive books for children, including five that won the prestigious Pura Belpré Award: Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book, Los Gatos Black on Halloween, Just in Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet Book, Niño Wrestles the World, and Viva Frida, which also received a Caldecott Honor. This is a beautiful story with wonderful and colorful illustrations that will inspire all.
