What do Félix Varela, Pura Belpré, and Tito Puente all have in common? They were all remarkable—and they were all Latinx. In Bravo!: Poems about Amazing Hispanics (Henry Holt, $18.99), author Margarita Engle and illustrator Rafael López celebrate the lives of famous and not-so-famous individuals who have made important contributions to the world. Poets mingle with doctors, revolutionaries with athletes, in this powerful tribute to the myriad interests, personalities, and talents of Latinx people. Ages 9-12.
