María Isabel Molina

José Martí was barely 16 years old when he began to fight for the independence of his homeland through his writing. At 17 he was declared an enemy of Spain and sentenced to six years of prison and hard labor. But that did not stop him. Martí dedicated his life to defending Cuba’s right to independence. Today he is remembered and honored as a man of integrity—brilliant and courageous—a lover of freedom and peace. Would you like to get to know Martí? Open this book and start reading!

Few people have had as much impact on history as Christopher Columbus. Columbus was convinced that his idea of traveling west from Europe was going to change the world, but not even he was able to imagine how much. He died without knowing that he had discovered a new continent, inhabited by many peoples with new ways of thinking and living. Who was this man who managed to get the king and queen of Spain to pay for a voyage that, in the opinion of the experts, was a crazy idea? Do you want to get to know Columbus? Open this book and start reading!
