Picture Books for Puerto Rican Navidad
In Puerto Rico La Navidades are celebrated from Thanksgiving to las Octavitas (the eight days after Reyes -- aka January 14).
I wanted to celebrate our unique approach to the season by featuring some of the picture books that best capture the spirit of our Navidades Boricuas.
Several of the picture books below need to be purchased directly from the publisher, so it's a good idea to snag these titles ASAP if you'd like to enjoy them this holiday season.
I've also included below the Sesame Street Holiday CD that features María & Luis singing an aguinaldo (traditional Puerto Rican Christmas Carol).
¡Wepa! ¡Feliz Navidad!

Puerto Rico Earthquakes: Relief & Rebuilding
As 2019 came to a close, the earth started shaking and hasn't stopped shaking in Puerto Rico.
My family members are safe, though without power and sleeping outside for fear of their homes collapsing during ongoing aftershocks.
Please spread awareness and reach out to your politicians in order to keep Puerto Rico front of mind.
Please also support organizations offering relief. Below I share three efforts that my family supports. If you’re able, please give and spread the word.
Thank you in advance for your continued prayers and attention.
