|Ellas: Historias de mujeres puertoriqueñas
Hello, everyone, I hope many of you are doing well during this moment of pandemic.

All I can say is that I definitely recommend this book not just for kids but to all ages who are hungry to learn about the history of Puerto Rico and to be honest it make me happy to see important figure like Myrna Báez (1931-2018) a very important female painter to the point she shaped me as an artist. Rita Moreno a Puerto Rican actress many knows her from the West side story. Julia De Burgos (1914-1953) a very important figure who was advocated the independence of Puerto Rico along side with Pedro Albizu Campos (1891-1965) and many more..
