This is the author website of award winning poet and author of books for children, young adults and adults. She is proudly Chicana and many of her books are published bilingually. Her poetry often switches between English and Spanish within each poem. Mora is known for her many books, including, Marimba! Animales from A to Z, A Birthday Basket for Tia, Dona Flor, My Own True Name and Agua Santa/Holy Water.

This is a beautifully designed website with numerous features including biographical and bibliographical information about Mora, information on her appearances and upcoming works, a page about her books for adults and young adults, a page about her children’s books, a “Kid Fun” page for children and a page of resources for Librarians and Educators.

This is one of the better Chicana/o author sites I’ve seen. It is truly set apart by the extensive resources listed for librarians and educators. This site is strongly recommended for all teachers and librarians serving children, especially those interested in optimizing the service they provide to their Spanish speaking communities.
