This story is beautifully written in both English and Spanish and tells the story of José Martí, a Cuban national hero who helped lead his country to independence. The gorgeous illustrations complement the text perfectly. This book will inspire young readers to speak up against injustices and fight for what is right. A wholly wonderful biography.

Let Freedom Ring! Written in bilingual verse, this beautifully illustrated picture book recounts the extraordinary life of Jose Marti, the Cuban revolutionary and poet who fought and died for Cuba’s independence from Spain. Excerpts from Marti’s Versos Sencillos are carefully woven into the text. This book is the perfect mentor text for any classroom studying concepts of social justice.
