Fiesta Feminina by Mary-Joan Gerson


Today marks day four of the anniversary celebration and giveaways!  A book that I really wanted to share is this feminist children’s book that explores the empowered women and folklore of Mexico.  From la virgen de Guadalupe to la luna, this book includes a variety of stories that showcase the talents and wisdoms of women.

I doubt there are enough stories about the strength of women in print and more specifically Latinas.  The book mostly features folkloric portrayals of women, so a great compliment would be a few books about strong Latinas like Dolores Huerta {Lado a Lado}.  We definitely need more great children’s book about strong Latinas, what are some titles that you can think of? 

I just love the story of la virgen de Guadalupe and we have several images of her in our home.  This is a great story to share with young ones and she’s such an important figure in Mexican culture.  For parents who love folklore and feminism, this will likely be a great resource in your home!
