Mary Olmstead is a Heinemann Raintree author.From Booklist:
Gr. 4-7. This title in the Hispanic-American Biographies series supplies a straightforward introduction to Tito Puente while highlighting the musician's wide influence on younger generations of performers. Well-organized chapters follow Puente from his childhood in New York City's Spanish Harlem through his burgeoning career and influential partnerships with other musicians to his crowning title as Mambo King in the 1950s. Fact boxes offer historical context on such topics as racial discrimination and World War II; other insets are profiles of musicians and musical movements. A smattering of mostly good-quality photos, including some color images, illustrate, and the book concludes with a time line, a few resources, and a glossary of terms that are bolded in the text. Other titles now available introduce Cesar Chavez, Roberto Clemente, and Jody Baca. Gillian Engberg
