Club Leo en español is immensely proud to be a resource for Spanish-language and bilingual classrooms. In continued celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month we’re providing multilevel Teaching Guides for three of our favorite books!
Niño Wrestles the World: Lesson Plan for 1st Grade
This 2014 Pura Belpré Illustration Winner follows the adventures of the brave and the stupendous Niño as he wrestles monsters from Mexican folklore and avoids the perils of naptime and younger siblings. A winsome main character and lively illustrations in the style of gráfica Mexicana make this a book shine.
Animaletras: Lesson Plan for 1st Grade
Animaletras is a Spanish-language alphabet book that explores the Animal Kingdom through poetry. Vibrant illustrations beautifully encapsulate the playfulness and vitality of Latin American art.
Sabores de América: All Ages!
Four Lesson Plans for 1st/2nd Grade, 3rd/4th, and 5th/6th
Sabores de América is the ultimate resource for Latino foods and their fascinating origin stories. This book includes gorgeous illustrations, maps, and a glossary. An excellent non-fiction resource.
*Club Leo en español is a proud participant in Latin@s in Kid Lit’s 2014 Reading Challenge, where contributors read and review at least one book per month with a Latino/a author or illustrator and/or Latino/a characters, settings, and themes. Read with us!*
