Paletero Man

Read this ebook in Granite’s Sora

Written by Lucky Diaz, Illustrated by Micah Player

This was a great read aloud book for young kids. They loved joining in and saying the repeated line, “Paletas for one! Paletas for all!” It is a simple story, yet if you pay attention, you will catch the impending dilemma through the illustrations. The little boy in this story finds what he needs through the help of his friends and community.

This is a good book to fill the need for read alouds during Hispanic Heritage Month, with Spanish words mixed in throughout. It is based on Lucky Diaz’s experiences growing up in Los Angeles. I really enjoyed his explanation at the end. I definitely recommend this book for school and home libraries.
