Our vision is to:
engage with works about, for, and/or by Latinxs;
offer a broad forum on Latinx children’s, MG, and YA books;
promote literacy and the love of books within the Latinx community;
examine the historical and contemporary state of Latinx characters;
encourage interest in Latinx children’s, MG, and YA literature among non-Latinx readers;
share perspectives and resources that can be of use to writers, authors, illustrators, librarians, parents, teachers, scholars, and other stakeholders in literacy and publishing.
On this site, you’ll find:
posts about Latinxs in children’s literature;
lists of books that we have read and reviewed with links to those reviews. Please read our Review Policy before requesting a review.
book talks, where we’ll highlight books we’re reading and explain why you should be reading them, too;
interviews with writers and illustrators about their creative journeys;
interviews with agents and editors about the publishing process;
articles and news links aimed at writers and others involved in literacy and publishing;
guest posts. Please write to us if you have an idea for a post.
Kindly let me know how I can get our company’s bilingual children’s books reviewed by your organization. We are a new, Philadelphia-based publishing company, with 5 books published, and would love to get reviews and exposure. Thanks!
Hi! You can send us more information at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will return the email with more information.

Love this mission!
I’ve scoured goodreads, my local library, amazon, etc… looking for a place where chicanx/latinx works are listed/published/sorted en masse.
I feel like I just found a gold mine.
