Mariposa’s library is a collection of a variety of multicultural texts and genres, including authentic Spanish and Latin American classics for families to enjoy in the comfort of their home.
We have been building our very own library for years and are excited to share a variety of books with you. Take some time to peruse and choose a couple.
