El dia mas importante de mi vida y otros cuentos
Every now and then something rings a chord in your life, and I came across this book in the library, and thought, "Wait a second, Pedro San Miguel taught me Puerto Rican history as an eighth grader in PR!" At least, I think it is the same person. I remember liking him a lot as a teacher. If he is the same guy, he went on to get a PhD and write about Caribbean history. This very short collection of simple stories would be a perfect formula for the African village libraries... each story is from the viewpoint of a child participating in a major event in Puerto Rican history. Very simple prose, with a lot of emotional power.
