Jeff Rivera, MEDIA BISTRO, Aug 10, 2009

Valerie Petrillo's A Kid's Guide to Latino History is my choice for the day's Book of Color Pick of the Day. A resource to be used in the classroom, A Kid's Guide to Latino History is chock full of over 50 activities designed to teach children about the people, experiences, and events that helped shaped Hispanic American History. The book is divided into sections, each dedicated to covering the descendants of the separate countries, Spanish colonial history, immigration, and much more. Children are also given a hands-on experience by engaging in one of the many activities listed throughout the book.

Valerie Petrillo is also the author of A Kid's Guide to Asian American History and Sailors, Whalers, Fantastic Sea Voyages: An Activity Guide to North American Sailing Life. She lives in Andover, Massachusetts.
