In this webinar, the panelists discussed how high-quality bilingual and dual language picture books celebrate the voices and cultures of young readers’ lived experiences and affirm and validate a child’s identity. Hear from Ying-Hwa Hu (Ten Blocks to the Big Wok); Claudia Guadalupe Martínez (Still Dreaming / Seguimos soñando); and Xelena González (Where Wonder Grows and Donde las maravillas crecen) as they discuss their books, their role as storytellers, and their hope for the future of bilingual and dual language children’s literature.
