A Girl Named Rosita
This beautifully illustrated picture book tells the story of Rita Moreno, the Puerto Rican superstar best known for her Oscar-winning performance in the original West Side Story film.
When young Rosita moved from Puerto Rico to the mainland US she didn't know what to expect but she knew she loved to sing and dance. Working to overcome the language barrier and bullying she experienced in a strange new country, Rita eventually made her way to Hollywood with the dream of becoming a star.
This storybook is a gorgeous tribute to the life and career of the first Latinx person to have earned an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award.
