Check this out!

Just wanted to pass along information about two new children’s books featuring characters who lived through the beginning of Castro’s revolution:  The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez (Random House/Knopf) and My Havana:  Memories of a Cuban Boyhood by Rosemary Wells and Secundino Fernandez illustrated by Peter Ferguson (Candlewick).

Reviews of both books are glowing.  Check ’em out — and ask your local librarian to add them to their collections.
