Kort biografi
Alma Flor Ada is an award-winning Cuban-American author of children's books, poetry, and novels. A Professor Emerita at the University of San Francisco, she is recognized for her work promoting bilingual and multicultural education in the United States.

Born in 1938 in Camagüey, Cuba, she grew up in a family of storytellers, poets, and educators, hearing traditional tales retold by her grandmother, father, and uncle. At the age of fifteen, she traded a quinceañera party for summer school in the United States, thus beginning her life as a bilingual person. After completing high school in Cuba, she earned a scholarship to attend Loretto Heights College. After a year at Barry College in Miami, she earned a Diploma de Estudios Hispanos with an Excellency Award at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She completed her Ph.D at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. She was awarded a Fulbright Scholars Exchange Grant and appointed a Radcliffe Institute scholar at Harvard University and prepared her dissertation for publication, Pedro Salinas: El diálogo creador.

In 1970, she and her four children relocated permanently to the United States. She currently resides in Marin County, California, and has nine grandchildren.

"Yes. We are Latinos" is a narrative poetry book which tells the story of 13 young culturally diverse students in different places of the United States. It is very interesting and inspiring for those students that can relate to the culture and traditions mentioned in the book. The book teaches children to never forget when're we come from and to never change who we truly are. Students will be able to learn about new culture or relate to the poems and connect it to their personal life. Other students may learn from this as well.… (mer)

I love books like this because I can relate to them a lot as the first gen child of undocumented immigrant parents. I feel like I can relate to a lot of their experiences as I read half of the book. I enjoyed reading this book alot and made me feel seen and represented as a minority who is proud of her heritage and where she comes from.

One Friday afternoon, Amalia comes to Abuelita’s house without her best friend, Martha. Abuelita senses that something is very wrong. The girls have been inseparable since fourth grade. When Amalia tells her grandmother that Martha is moving far away, Abuelita encourages her to keep in touch with her friend. Amalia feels so hurt that she doesn’t even want to say good-bye to Martha. She certainly can’t think about staying in touch through letters. Then, Abuelita dies, and Amalia’s mind relives all of the wonderful times with her grandmother- listening to family stories, making melcocha (taffy) and vanilla cake with strawberries and dulce de leche. Amalia remembers the time Abuelita helped her through a rough time at school. When her mother gives her Abuelita’s olive wood box, Amalia finds the Christmas card that her grandmother made for the coming holiday. The other cards and letters in the box begin to heal Amalia’s hurt heart, and so, Amalia thinks of a way to reconnect with Martha.

Margie works very hard to make sure that everyone at school knows that she’s an American. Her parents may be from Mexico, but she was born in Texas. Now, her cousin, Lupe, has come from Mexico to live with Margie and her parents. Lupe has long braids and wears an organza party dress the first day. Lupe doesn’t get assigned to the bilingual classroom as Margie expected. Lupe sits next to Margie in her class, and the teacher expects Margie to translate for her. Margie’s carefully constructed American persona begins to crumble. She feels embarrassment for her cousin and shame for her feelings. Then, Camille, a new girl, helps Margie understand that a person can embrace their heritage and still be 100% American. As Margie acknowledges that coming to America has been difficult for Lupe, her feelings soften, and her kinship with Lupe takes on new meaning.
