"The House on Mango Street" by Sandra Cisneros

As your child gets older, finding the free time to read can get harder—so there’s no better time to introduce her to the world of short fiction! Sandra Cisneros’ award-winning collection of vignettes in The House on Mango Street will not only provide a fresh look at narrative structure, but it’ll also be easy to squeeze into a busy schedule in bite-sized amounts, especially now that your child is comfortable with linear storylines. Plus: it’s a great book!
