15 Books to Read for Hispanic Heritage Month


Our young daughter has a multicultural background and we are always trying our best to expose her to all the different cultures. Starting September 15th, we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month when we honor the cultures and contributions of people with ancestors from across the Caribbean, Central and South America, Mexico, and Spain.
