Did you know that José is the most popular name for baby boys in both California and Texas? Or that tacos are nearly as popular as hamburgers? More and more, the tastes and flavors of Hispanic culture play a role in American life. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Latinos will make up two-thirds of the population growth in the United States for the first half of the twenty-first century. At this rate, Latinos will number 80 million by the year 2050!

Hispanic Americans make the United States a stronger and more exciting nation. This book will help you understand all that Latinos have to offer to the United States!
