Stories to Our Children: A Program Aimed at Developing Authentic and Culturally Relevant Literature for Latina/o Children
Rosado, Luis; Amaro-Jiménez, Carla; Kieffer, Ivonne
School Community Journal, v25 n1 p73-93 2015
This article describes a unique program co-sponsored by a local public library, a university teacher preparation program, and a school district, created to support Latina/o parents as they produced authentic and culturally relevant literature representing multiple ethnic groups living in the Southwestern United States. A program like the one reported here could potentially lessen the gap existent in the availability of authentic literature written by Latina/os and could ignite a whole new group of readers and writers that can speak to the unique experiences they bring to this country--be it through a different cultural or linguistic lens or through the sharing of stories which would have otherwise gone unheard.
