Listen to the stunning picture book, Bright Star, read by the author, Yuyi Morales. It is as good a listen for teens and adults as it is for children! You can also listen to Morales read aloud Niño Wrestles the World, Viva Frida, and Dreamers. She is a wonderful reader!

Find many books to share with children in our collection of Pura Belpre Medal winners. This medal is awarded each year for both writing and illustration to recognize literature that best celebrates the Latino cultural experience.
