Let’s Read Latin@: 73 titles released in 2015


We’re back!

After a short summer break, the Latin@s in Kid Lit crew is back to begin our third year online, celebrating children’s literature by/about/for Latin@s. In December 2014, we had posted a preview of 24 middle grade and young adult releases in 2015. Well, as the year rolled on, we discovered many more! Below, we have posted the covers of 71 picture books, early readers, middle grade, and young adult novels by/for/or about Latin@s that have been or will be released in 2015. If we have missed any, please let us know in the comments.

If we have already highlighted a title on the site, you will be led to that post when you click on the cover. Otherwise, you will be taken to IndieBound.org, Amazon, or GoodReads for more information. We have not read all of these titles–so we cannot vouch for each one–but we plan to read and recommend many of these in addition to 2016 releases. So, go ahead and browse the titles, add them to your to-be-read lists, or buy copies for yourself, friends, and family. With schools opening and holidays around the corner, it’s the perfect time to buy books! If we want to continue to celebrate libros Latin@s, we need to read, buy, and support libros Latin@s! Happy reading!
