Sweet Dreams, Mis Hijos

by Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez, illustrated by Yocelyn Riojas

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.
