Podcasts about literature aimed at tweens and teens can often be challenging to find, especially those that focus on Latin American culture. This makes a podcast like Tres Cuentos Literary Podcast feel indispensable, especially for Latino listeners who might relate more to these stories. Host Carolina Quiroga-Stultz stands out with her inclusive tone and variety of content. Since each episode contains a lot of information -- and is almost an hour in length -- it's best to listen in small chunks.

This is a thoughtful educational podcast that always has something new to teach. The stories are unique, the authors chosen are diverse, and the post-story discussions are always enlightening. Some episodes and segments often feel like they're aimed more at adults, serving as guides for parents to learn so they can have more meaningful conversations with their kids after listening. Some of the stories are scary and deal with more mature themes, so it's important for tweens, teens and event adults to know they're limits when looking through episode descriptions.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
