Bless Me, Ultima Read-a-Likes for Kids & Teens

The 2013 Big Read book is Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya. Set in a small New Mexican community during World War II, this novel relates the dignity, traditions and mythology of Chicano life through the eyes of 7-year old  Antonio M├írez, his family and Ultima, the old healer who comes to stay with them. 

Bless Me, Ultima is really for teen and adult readers. So we've put together a list of books with similar themes for younger children as well as other books by Rudolfo Anaya. Enjoy!
