Mayra L. Dole

It was a thrill today to hear from Mayra L. Dole, the Cuban-born author of the new multicultural bilingual books, Drum, Chavi, Drum!/Toca, Chavi, Toca! and Birthday in the Barrio/Cumpleanos en el Barrio (Children’s Book Press).

Do surf over to her Web site to read the article on Writing Children’s Latino Books (also helpful for writing any children’s books), Dole’s bio, her interviews (very interesting). Also be sure to check out her Cuban recipes, Cuban stories, and Cuban culture page.
