PangaAbuelita is a renowned online platform dedicated to promoting and preserving the cultural heritage of Latin American literature, with a focus on children’s books. Our mission is to reconnect children with their cultural roots and empower them through literature, fostering empathy, diversity, and multicultural understanding. We envision a world where the rich literary traditions of Latin American countries are cherished and celebrated by children of all backgrounds, inspiring a sense of belonging and cultural pride.
PangaAbuelita was founded in 2005 by Pamela Miller, a passionate advocate for cultural diversity in literature. Pamela, an experienced educator herself, was deeply concerned about the lack of representation and accessibility of Latin American children’s literature. Due to this void, many children were missing the opportunity to develop a sense of pride and connection with their cultural roots through literature.
Driven by her passion, Pamela set out to curate a collection of high-quality children’s books that captured the essence and cultural vibrancy of Latin America. Through her determination and devotion, PangaAbuelita gradually grew into an influential platform, providing parents, educators, and children a comprehensive resource to connect with Latin America’s extensive literary heritage.
PangaAbuelita was created to address the pressing need to give children access to culturally diverse books that highlight Latin America’s enchanting stories, characters, and customs. By showcasing the literature of this vibrant region, we hope to kindle the love for reading and promote cross-cultural understanding among children.
