Be Bold! Be Brave! is a perfect introduction to eleven fabulous and inspiring Latinas! The biographies are short and easy digestible for young readers, and certainly leaves room for further exploration into each of their amazing careers. From a librarian to an astronaut, the sources of inspiration are wide-ranging! We absolutely love that this book encourages bilingual learning with its accompanying Spanish translations. This book, along with its companion Latino version, Fearless Trailblazers, are absolute must-haves for any children’s library!
More about the publisher Con Todo Press:
“CON TODO PRESS was created in 2018 to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities. CTP publishes books that reflect a more balanced representation of women, Latinos, and people of color. Our first book, Be Bold, Be Brave: 11 Latinas who made U.S. History, highlights 11 women who excelled in medicine, science, sports, the arts, journalism and politics. Our upcoming titles will also have main characters of color, and contain culturally relevant subject matter written by Latinx authors. Our mission is to keep producing books told from an authentic and relatable perspective, that will bridge the gap between communities of color and media.”
