This book is for any one with Hispanic roots that needs to get back in touch with their Latino upbringing. Sometimes we see the negative side of Hispanics on the news or just out side our door. This book reminds us that we have something to be proud of regardless if we are Mexican, Puerto Rican or any other Hispanic race. I always give it as a gift to remind young people where they came from.

I refer to this book often for quotes, and to remind me of my family for a variety of events.

Good. Wish I could locate at least five (5) more copies. The sayings bring back memories of what my grandmother would say to us as children.

I expected short stories or legends from Native Speakers of the Spanish language. Instead it's a few words of wisdom from selected Hispanics talking about their childhood, etc. They are mostly first, second or third generation Americans of Hispanic heritage. I expected something more authentic in order to gain more insight into the Hispanic Culture. I also thought the book was in Spanish, but it's written in English.

I really enjoy the book, I have read it more than twice, however I wish the author inclued pictures of her mom and family.... there is not enough information about Yolanda Nava, is she married, does she have kids? I like to know about the life of my favorite authors....
"Trabaja para mas valer, estudia para mas saber." Work to be worth more, study to know more. This book is a gem. It is structured so each chapter has a theme like responsabilidad, respecto, justicia. Famous latinos share a story and then the author links a set of appropriate dichos - commonly known in the english language as proverbs. This book is helpful for those of use who grew up hearing dichos from our abuelitos, but not understanding the historical context. Excellent choice!
