And within this series, an exciting collection that breaks down barriers: Square pegs don't fit into round holes. It's that simple.
Specifically for young actors of Hispanic descent, M. Ramirez has written a group of books for second, third, fourth generation immigrant kids who don't often feel included in a lot of the literature they're surrounded with. References to abuelos, abuelas, and other cultural specifics help make these performance pieces a little more accessible to kids who might or might not be speaking English as a second language. all with a specific flavor that will help young actors find their voices and stretch themselves, performing pieces that speak not only about them, but directly to them.
Because of the Latino flavor incorporated into this material, these kids can focus on what they are meant to focus on- performing - without any cultural barriers.
