A Proud Heritage: The Hispanic Library

The United State's fastest-growing ethnic minority has increased every year since 2000, yet quality materials chronicling Hispanic culture are often lacking in today's curriculum. Like our renowned Journey to Freedom series, A Proud Heritage is a bold, intelligent initiative that brings the history and culture of Hispanic peoples to life. Students will gain a deep appreciation for Spanish-speaking peoples and nations and their many contributions to the world we know today. Additional features to aid comprehension include a table of contents, a phonetic glossary, sources for further research, suggested activities, a timeline of key events, and an index.
