Excellent Children's Books for Hispanic Heritage Month. A collection of our favorite picture books featuring Hispanic - Latinx characters, authors, and illustrators.
Hispanic Heritage Month is a 30 day period honoring contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. To celebrate the month, I put together some book lists, beginning with these Children's Books for Hispanic Heritage Month.
All of these picture books feature Hispanic characters from a variety of countries, including Hispanic Americans, with a preference for Hispanic - Latinx authors and illustrators. These are also all Hispanic children's books that I've loved reading and sharing with my own children.
Growing up in New Mexico, I've always been surrounded by rich Hispanic culture and I appreciate what a privilege it is to raise my own children in such a diverse and culturally rich area. These children's books for Hispanic Heritage Month, however, are a fun way to experience and learn more about Latinx - Hispanic, traditions, cultures, and people no matter where you live.
If you're looking for more Children's Books for Hispanic Heritage Month, I like to look at the lists of books that have won the Pura Belpre Award and the Tomas Rivera Book Award, plus they add new books to the list each year.
If you want shorter list of books to start with, the first twelve on this list are my favorite.
