Mi prima isleña y yo

My Island cousin and I

Written by Massiel Zaragoza |

Illustrated by Vidya Lalgudi Jaishankar 


Mi prima isleña y yo is a bilingual (Spanish / English) children's book that tells the story of two Puerto Rican cousins: one who lives on the island and one who lives in the United States. The strong connection between the two cousins is undeniable, given that they share a strong love for their heritage, despite living worlds apart. This touching story can be used to engage children in conversations about bicultural / multicultural identity development.
