Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Yuyi Morales


It’s Hispanic Heritage Month!

In honor of our Hispanic friends, I’d like to share two books with you from Yuyi Morales.  I love Yuyi’s books because they are for my littlest of little friends and she shares her stories in Spanish and English, which I LOVE!

Nino Wrestles the World


In Nino Wrestles the World,

No opponent is too big a challenge for the cunning skills of Niño—popsicle eater, toy lover, somersault expert, and world champion lucha libre competitor!

This book is adorable and I love that the little guy is in his underpants on the cover.  This title is great for story times and if you go to her website, you’ll find activities to do with the kiddies. As you can see from the photo above, someone left a lucha mask at the bookstore and I decided that my title should be Pamo!

Another book of Morales’ that I discovered is Viva Frida.



We are big Frida Kahlo fans at our house so we were thrilled to find this delightful bilingual book.  Excuse my rusty Spanish as I share the story with you in this video. I hope you enjoy.

Isn’t that book adorable? I love the creative use of dolls and live action figures and other items to create the multidimensional picture.  Do you have a fave author for hispanic heritage month? There are so many!
