Frida Kahlo's art is unmistakable, featuring her with black braided hair and vibrant Mexican attire. Despite lifelong illness, she became a living masterpiece. Known for her self-portraits and marriage to Diego Rivera, she drew inspiration from Mexico's rich culture. Her work remains influential globally, shaping popular culture.

In a charming poetic recipe, a young boy and his mother create a heartwarming bean soup. They gather ingredients from Mother Earth, and the process is a magical experience. The story is simple yet filled with vivid imagery. Jorge Argueta's verse and Rafael Yockteng's illustrations make preparing bean soup a delightful family tradition, appealing to both bean soup enthusiasts and those seeking a wholesome, delicious meal.

A young girl takes readers on a stroll through her neighborhood to share the joy of paletas, traditional Mexican popsicles. In this bilingual paperback, experience the delight of these frozen fruit treats. Make choices, create your perfect paleta, and beat the heat on a summer's day.

Duncan Tonatiuh's picture book, "Princess and the Warrior: A Tale of Two Volcanoes," vividly portrays a beloved Mexican legend. Izta, a beautiful princess, chooses love over wealth, falling for the brave warrior, Popoca. The emperor tests their love by challenging Popoca to defeat their enemy, Jaguar Claw. The tale unfolds with suspense and heart.

Duncan Tonatiuh's picture book, "Funny Bones," delves into the origins of José Guadalupe Posada's whimsical Día de Muertos skeletons. The story unfolds around Posada, a Mexican artist who used his skill in printing to create political cartoons that delighted the people but irked politicians. He later gained fame for his calavera drawings, which now symbolize Mexico's Día de Muertos, depicting skeletons engaged in various everyday and celebratory activities.

In this lively Day of the Dead story, the Land of the Dead skeletons eagerly prepare for el Día de los Muertos with the Living. Except for Angelito, who dreads the Living's "horrifying" appearance. Lost among the Living, he befriends a boy equally scared of skeletons. Eventually, they bond over the holiday's traditions, bridging their worlds for festive fun.

"The First Rule of Punk" is a charming exploration of friendship and self-expression. Malú, a twelve-year-old with a punk style, faces the challenges of her first day at a new school. Inadvertently clashing with the popular girl and breaking the dress code, she seeks her identity, guided by her distant father's advice: the first rule of punk is to be yourself.

A touching story, "Clear Moon," explores the lives of immigrants and their unbreakable bonds. Clara Luna, 14, receives an invitation from her Mexican grandparents to spend the summer with them. Struck by the differences between their simple mountain life and her life in the United States, Clara learns about her roots and discovers the hidden spirit waterfall, guided by a young goatherder named Pedro. Her journey raises questions about her identity and heritage.

This captivating visual guide delves into the remarkable world of the ancient Aztecs and other Mesoamerican civilizations like the Incas and Mayas. The journey through history explores their expansive empires, divine pantheon, and rich culture, highlighting their daily lives, festivities, and ultimate clash with Spanish conquerors, shaping the legacy that endures today.

Discover the origin of chocolate with Mayan king Kukulkán, who's not only a king but also a god. He presents his people with a special gift—a chocolate tree. Yet, his brother Night Jaguar opposes sharing chocolate with regular people, believing it should be reserved for the gods. Will Night Jaguar succeed, or will the Mayans enjoy their chocolate tree?

Celebrity Chef Gaby Melian invites young chefs into her kitchen to master 70 Latin American recipes, from breakfast to dessert. Each recipe is kid-tested and kid-approved.
