The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

¡Leamos!: A Latino Dozen for Teens
--selected by Maggie Hommel

The Latin culture craze may have started with pop music icons like J. Lo, but it seems all-things-Latin, from music to cuisine to dance, are growing in popularity, and many teens just can't get enough. The last few years have also seen a surge in books reflecting the Latin American teen experience, and whether you're looking to satisfy your patrons' Latin cravings, want to teach about Latin American culture in an appetizing way, or know Hispanic teens looking for books they can relate to, this month's Dozens will feed your need. With stories and poems featuring such varied experiences as life in a harsh city barrio, a trip to lush Puerto Rico, an American quinceañero, and more, these libros are full of the rhythms and spices of Latino cultures to which booklovers of all backgrounds will be drawn. ¡Leamos!--Let's read.
