The Inside Guide: Celebrating Hispanic Cultures

"Hispanic" describes people who are from (or whose ancestors are from) countries in which Spanish is the main language. However, Hispanic people don't think of themselves as a single group, and there's no single Hispanic culture or identity. This important series focuses on several nations of Hispanic peoples, giving readers insight into the beauty and complexity of the heritage. Each volume offers an in-depth exploration of the culture, including music, art, cuisine, and celebrations. Informative fact boxes and sidebars illuminate the customs particular to each region, and vivid photographs and graphic organizers make the information pop.

Each Book Contains:
• Concluding discussion questions that review key ideas and promote critical thinking skills
• Historical as well as current information presented in a clear and inviting way that elementary readers can understand
