PRAISE FOR

US, IN PROGRESS

★ “Pura Belpré honoree Delacre’s chronicles—each different from the next—offer moving snapshots of family heartbreak, disadvantage, dysfunctionality, heartbreak, privilege, and joy.”
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★ “Beautifully written with candor, honesty and perfect brevity. Delacre illustrates as well, providing a gorgeous mixed-media portrait of each story’s main character. A collection not to be missed.”

"La lengua es puerta a una cultura y vínculo a la herencia"

I believe that we Latinos bring richness and beauty to the American fabric. I’m passionate about creating books that empower Latino children by instilling pride in their heritage. I strive for these books to expand the horizons of those unfamiliar with Latino culture and in doing so, foster understanding.
