New children’s books about Central America are few and far between and the U.S. publishing industry has let several outstanding works on the region go out of print. We urge publishers to address this scarcity of books about Central America and by Central American authors. Given the lack of good books in print, we included some titles on this page that are out of print.
For more information and resources, visit Teaching for Change's campaign to Put Central America on the Map in Schools, including lessons, films, websites, biographies of noted historical figures, and readings for free use by classroom teachers.
