    1 thought on “Bravo!: Poems About Amazing Hispanics”

    1. Though I loved the concept and how much I learned from this book, the individual poems themselves didn't speak to me as much as I thought they would. They read more biographical than poetic to me, but that would not stop me from using this fantastic collection in a classroom for sure. The poems pair fabulously with the additional "Notes About the Lives" at the end - don't miss the back matter.

    2. I was thrilled to find this collection of poems about 18 different Hispanic men and women who made a difference in the world in my mail. Since there is an English version and a Spanish version of the book, its poems will be that much more accessible to its intended audience. In its pages, the always-reliable Margarita Engle has carefully chosen a wide variety of individuals to highlight. While some, such as Pura Belpre and Roberto Clemente, will be familiar to readers, others such as George Mele [...]

    3. The lives of a variety of Latinos who faced life's challenges in their own ways. Each person is stunningly portrayed in López's strong and vibrant artwork.

    4. Bravo, Margarita Engle! This book needs to be in every classroom and every library! Let's inspire our Hispanic students to be all they can be!

    5. Young People’s Poet Laureate Margarita Engle once again educates us about Latinos as she brings to life 18 individuals, from many time periods (presented chronologically), walks of life, and spheres of influence through her poetry. In “First Friend”, Juan de Miralles (a Cuban observer and friend of George Washington) tells his story in 1780: “George asks me to help by sending my ships back to the island of Cuba – my homeland – so that I can deliver a fragrant load of juice green trop [...]

    6. Engle, Margarita Bravo! Poems about Amazing Hispanics Illustrated by Rafael Lopez PICTURE BOOK Godwin Books, 2017 (Henry Holt and Co). $18.99 Content: G. Eighteen different Hispanic people are covered in this illustrated book of poems. Each poem eludes to how that person overcame hardship and contributed to the greater good in America. At the back of the book is a full paragraph that gives a better biography about what that person did. The people are from all different time periods, as far back [...]

    7. An introduction to a host of Hispanics, both well-known and those who have fallen into obscurity but made an impact during their lives. Each person in this gets a two page spread with a free verse poem about their accomplishments along with amazing illustrations that include weave in elements of what made them famous. I had never heard of several of these people but others are super well-known. I loved the great breadth in occupations and areas of life in which these Hispanics had an impact. The [...]

    8. The illustrations are just glorious. A consistent, rich, warm palette brings to life portraits that feel both larger than life and intimately human. Each image includes some symbols of the subject's passions: hot peppers, a dirigible, molecular chains. On the facing page is a brief poem and another small illustration alluding beautifully to several aspects of the person's story. A friend of mine found the poems just the right amount of invitation to entice her into hunting out more information, [...]

    9. I heard about this book listening to an audio podcast interview of the author and illustrator. Each featured person is introduced in a poem and I loved learning hints about their lives through the poetry. I found myself imagining the people as they might have been in life. I looked at the years they lived (too many of them seemed to have too short lives) and what they did in that time.I was also grateful for the small biographical blurbs at the end that slightly expanded the picture of their liv [...]

    10. Recommended by CCBlogC,Bravo! Poems About Amazing Hispanicsare free verse poems teaching about Hispanics who Margarita Engles states, “Some were celebrated in their lifetimes but have been forgotten by history. Others achieved lasting fame.” Written in chronological order, these biographical poems teach about people from all different time periods. In addition, at the end of the book, Engle shares notes about each person’s lives. The poems are short, but factual and Rafael Lopez’s bright [...]

    11. Engle and Lopez take readers through a quick multicultural history that captures a fraction of the struggles and adversities Hispanics had to overcome for a quality lifestyle. Engle's simple poems focus on prominent hispanics from every area- sports (Roberto Clemente) to art (Louis Agassiz Fuertes) to music (Tito Puente) to pilots (Aida de Acosta) to scientists (George Melendez Wright). The simple poems are equally matched by the simplistic yet colorful illustrations by Rafeal Lopez. While this [...]

    12. I absolutely loved this book! Engle states at the outset that this isn't a book about the most famous Hispanic Americans, but about various interesting and amazing ones. Indeed, I only recognized about half of these people, so it was a pleasure to learn about the others whom I'd never heard of. At the end of the book she provides 4 pages of further information about the lives of these people, many of whom I felt inspired to want to read more about. I was also drawn to the Rafael Lopez's illustra [...]

    13. Bravo! provides various Hispanic background information about: a chemist, a baseballer, a folk teller, a cowboy and the first latin woman pilot. The listings of everyone provides their names, their origin, their birth and death year, and their talents of how each has contributed towards their struggle and community. Colorful portrait pictures gives you an idea of who they were. Jose' Marti from cuba who was an activist, a writer and a folk teller. Aida de Acosta from cuba who flew airships in Pa [...]

    15. (Also available in Spanish edition)There are so many strengths to this collection of poems, each of which pays homage and profiles a remarkable man or woman with Latin heritage. It's a powerful example of honoring the heroism and leadership of those who stand up and stand for important values and rights. Some are well-known, others will be introductions to readers. The back matter bio-sketches provide enough reference material to launch further research. Engle's gift for poetry is used to full e [...]

    16. Although the title of the book includes the phrase "Poems about amazing Hispanics", Margarita Engle hopes readers will look beyond heritage and appreciate the courage, creativity, and passion of the people showcased in this book. The illustrations are by Rafael Lopez, who uses bold and bright colors, symbolism, and objects to give the reader a sense of what it would be like to meet, or see each of these amazing people in their element. The poems are short and biographical, I learned details abou [...]

    17. This was an incredible collection of poetry about mostly little known Hispanic/Latino achievers. One poem per person, with breathtaking illustrations. I enjoyed reading about the people, including the short bios in the back. It's the kind of history I never got as a kid, and I am sure a lot of people don't get now.I feel it is important to learn about all kinds of people and how they have shaped their lives and impacted the lives of others. I was really interested to learn how many were from Cub [...]

    18. I just love everything about this book. Engle offers little verse snapshots of so many fascinating Latinx people (with more detailed bios in the backmatter), while López provides full-page, color-drenched portraits of each. Seriously, these illustrations are so stunning that I literally can't stop looking at them. (Juana Briones and Pura Belpré are my faves.) Gorgeous to look at, and good for self-directed browsing, reading aloud, or classroom use. Though the text here is much simpler, this wo [...]

    19. I like how this book of poetry is more biographical and reads like a story of each person instead of a sing-songy rhyming book of poetry as is often written for children so they can see a variety of style and structure in poetry. I also like how this collection tells the story of a diverse group of Hispanics: musicians, athletes, scientists, etc. There is also a great note at the end that tells more about the lives of those featured in the book.

    20. I really appreciate being introduced to a ton of Hispanic-Americans who I didn’t know at all. There were only two in this book who I knew with certainty. HOWEVER, it’s not very well written. There’s no real reason for the info to be poems instead of prose, and the poems are so general. I’d prefer if they had focused on a specific moment in life, and used another part of the book to add non-fiction details.

    21. Margarita Engle's poems, in conversational tone, highlight 18 amazing Hispanics who come from different backgrounds and have contributed much to history. The artwork is gorgeous, rich in color. Back matter holds: More and More Amazing Latinos; and Note About the Lives. This is a wonderful title for any collection. One that can leave readers wanting to dig deeper into the lives of these remarkable individuals.

    22. Reviewing for 2017 Beehive Poetry long list nominees. Very interesting! I only was familiar with two of the people who had poems about them. Both because I work in a library. I found each of their stories intriguing--just from the little snippets given in dates, poetry, or small bio paragraphs. While the illustrations and poetry may not have been outstanding, the subject matter is highly worth it. An extra star just for that.

    23. Biographies of famous Latin-Americans. Some well known like Jose Marti, Cesar Chavez and Roberto Clemente, and some lesser known like Aida de Acosta (first woman pilot!) and Julia de Burgos (puertorriquena poetess). Also contains a page about Pura Belpre who was the first puertorriquena librarian in New York City: fitting that the award for a book about the Latin-american experience should be named after her!

    24. I was surprisingly impressed by this collection of poems inspired by Hispanics. each poem gave clear insight into the inspiration and allowed the reader a simple version of their life. easy to read and didn't drag. could clearly understand each life even without the ending blurbs. elementary and up

    25. The illustrations are gorgeous and what an important topic, to celebrate and highlight Amazing Hispanics. I always slightly struggle with book like these because it just gives you a glimpse into these lives, but leave so much more to be desired! But this one can also launch an investigation into the lives of these remarkable people.

    26. Eighteen truly extraordinary people are introduced via first person narrative prose poems. Engle has chosen to have each one present herself/himself and to shed light on the essence of what has made each individual so remarkable. Rafael Lopez's portraits are both beautiful and telling; they complement the words and add tremendous depth to the personalities of their subjects. I say: ¡BRAVO!

    27. More of a collection of micro-biographies than poetry. No matter how you categorize it this is certainly a very special collection of illustrated lives. Recommended for ALL school and library collections. A true masterpiece from highly decorated Margarita Engle.

    28. 2018 Bluebonnet. Collection of poems introducing "Amazing Hispanics" Interesting read. Could be a good place for kids to start if they are interested in reading about Hispanic people who have had a positive impact on the world.

    29. Bravo, indeed! A great spotlight on Hispanic Americans and their contributions. Beautiful poems. Gorgeous artwork. Mini biographies are included in the back- as well as another poem naming more amazing people!
