Description: "Poetry with a distinct flavor: a skillfully mixed appetizer." --Kirkus Reviews (starred) Here are the sights, sounds, and smells of Latino culture in America in thirty-six vibrant, moving, angry, beautiful and varied voices, including Alicia Gaspar de Alba, Ana Castillo, Sandra Cisneros, Luis J. Rodríguez, Gary Soto, and Martín Espada. Presented in both English and Spanish, each poem helps us to discover the stories behind the mangoes and memories, prejudice and fear, love and life--how it was and is to grow up Hispanic in America.... "The subtle but singing lyrics frequently have a colloquial tone that will speak to many young readers." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred) "Excellent enrichment...Whether discussing the immigrant's frustration at not being able to speak English...the familiar adolescent desire to belong, or celebrating the simple joys of life, these fine poems are incisive and photographic in their depiction of a moment." --School Library Journal (starred)
