Bilingual mini biographies (in English and Spanish) introduce young readers to groundbreaking Latino leaders—from Roberto Clemente and César Chávez to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sonia Sotomayor.
Thoroughly engaging stories about amazing trailblazers include contemporary figures in many fields, from science and business to journalism and visual arts. Five-minute biographies provide an interesting window into each person’s origins and accomplishments, as well as describing the way their heritage factored into their lives. Curious readers will discover:
- which Supreme Court justice was called Aji (hot pepper) by her family when she was a girl
- how Julián and Joaquín Castro’s mother set the stage for her twin boys to go into politics
- why Jorge Ramos never stops asking “why?”
- Desi Arnaz’s secret to making sitcom history on TV
- and many more insights into these, and other, amazing lives
From current stars like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jennifer López to icons such as Dolores Huerta and Desi Arnaz, readers will learn about extraordinary people from different backgrounds who made their mark in a wide range of fields.
