Cinco de Mayo (Older)

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Celebrate with this list of fiction and nonfiction books for teen readers starring the holiday itself, Mexican and Mexican American protagonists, and the Spanish language. All were recommended by the Horn Book at the time of their publication. Grade levels are only suggestions; the individual child is the real criterion.
