Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with These Books for Kids

Do you think you know what Cinco de Mayo celebrates? It's not Mexican independence day. Really, this holiday commemorates a Mexican military victory at the Battle of Pueblo against the French in 1862.

These days, it's more widely celebrated in the United States than it is in Mexico! This holiday is a great opportunity to read some books featuring Mexican and Mexican-American characters, culture, and history. Click the covers below to check out a book!
