En la Clase: Teaching about Quinceañeras

As many of you know, our featured book for this month is Estrella’s Quinceañera by Malín Alegría.  As I was reading Alegría’s book and doing the research for our Educator’s Guide, I realized I’d never really thought much about quinceañeras, even though they’re an important cultural celebration for many.  While we’ve written a great deal here on the blog about other cultural traditions or celebrations and how to teach about them in the classroom, we seem to have neglected this one!
