Children’s Book about Puerto Rico
When my child was born 8 years ago, I had a goal in mind: to find as many children’s book about Puerto Rico so I can share with him. Little by little, I started building up my child’s home library. Some of the books listed here we own, others are on my wish list. On the books that we do own, you’ll see an additional post on how we used it such as an activity or craft or a review on the book.
Since there are so many books on this list, I broke them down into ten sections with a header so you can learn about Puerto Rico through these books: Notable Figures, Taínos, Flora and Fauna, Popular Culture, Christmas, Folk Tales, Geography, Picture Books, Chapter Books, and Fiction.
I hope you enjoy this list! If there’s a children’s book that is not listed here please share in the comments below so I can add it. ¡Gracias!
