Another Resource for Diversity in Children's Books: Latinas4LatinoLiterature

At the end of last month, a new blog launched called Latinas for Latino Literature (L4LL). The blog was started by four Latina bloggers who want to "support and connect Latino authors with the Latino community" (from the website). One of L4LL's goals is to: "Share resources for Latino families who want to find Latino children's literature" (also from their website).

During the month of April,  L4LL is celebrating Dia de los Ninos, Dia de los Libros (Children's Day, Books Day) by hosting a blog hop that will featuring a different article about a Latino author and/or illustrator every day from April 10th through April 30th (which is the actual Dia de los Ninos, Dia de los Libros). They're also having a giveaway of a collection of children's books to a school library or public library. The first featured author is Pat Mora and you can read more about her and her work at L4LL. Below is a schedule for the blog hop:
