Latinx Heritage Month kicks off every Sept. 15, and there are so many ways to celebrate with kids. Whether parents want to try out new recipes, like this one for Mexican mazapánes, or share stories about well-known (and not so well-known) people who are making a difference, there are so many options.
One way to celebrate the month is for parents to read books about the Latinx experience to their kids. Here are five books for little ones — picture books and books for early readers — from Latinx authors that will help immerse kids in Latin culture as well as foster understanding and appreciation. And that goes for any and every month of the year!
