This 2-book set features one about the work of Francisco Oller and one about art inspired by the jíbaros of Puerto Rico. A wonderful introduction for your beginning readers to the art and culture of Puerto Rico.
Both books are by Rebecca Hinson, in English or Spanish, 24 pages. Lots of pictures! Spanish translation by Julissa Mansilla-Bjalme, a Spanish professor of Florida Atlantic University.
The author discovered that using books about a child's culture helped to include that child into a classroom discussion. Parents and caregivers can also use these books to spark discussions with children about art, the history of Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico's culture.
Available in hardcover, too.
