Every year, Scholastic celebrates Hispanic and Latine Heritage Month. Observed from September 15 to October 15, it honors the incredible stories, voices, contributions, and experiences of Hispanic and Latine Americans.
To celebrate Hispanic and Latine heritage in your classroom, explore this list of popular fiction and nonfiction titles handpicked by our editors, including picture books, biographies, and novels.
For example, Jovita Wore Pants is a biographical picture book about Jovita Valdovinos, a Mexican heroine and trailblazing revolutionary. This remarkable true story introduces readers to the history of the Cristeros Revolution and covers important themes like courage, hope, and resilience.
There's also This Is Our Place — a touching novel that will teach older readers about the power of connection. Set in Brazil, this book shares the stories of three teens across three generations living in the same house as they navigate life and find their place in the world.
This month and throughout the year, read and share stories honoring Hispanic and Latine voices. Whether you teach young elementary school students or middle school, there is something for everyone on this list.
