Gr 3&11;5&12; The purpose of this series is to celebrate the history and culture of Latino American and Hispanic American peoples. While promising in concept, the execution falls flat. There are a number of problems. First, generalities are abundant. For example, Folklore states, "Families in all cultures love their children, but Latinos do so especially." Second, the texts are riddled with unsubstantiated statements: ("Salsa is even more popular than ketchup."). Third, grammar is higgledy-piggledy. "Very" and "a lot" are used indiscriminately, as are exclamation points. Contractions and incomplete sentences are commonplace ("So does Incan attention to tiny details."). The volumes can also be redundant. For example, in Spain, Moctezuma is described as "worried," "nervous," "troubled," and "unhappy" all within three pages of text. Sandy Donovan's The Hispanic American Experience (21st Century, 2010) is a stronger choice.

In the United States, people from all different backgrounds live together. More than one in eight people in the United States are Hispanic-but they come from different lands and backgrounds. As all these people have come to America, they have shared their foods with the United States. Some of our favorite treats-tacos, salsa, and tortilla chips, for example-come to us from the Hispanic American community. Find out how Latino Americans have added flavor to our country!
