Dichos de mi Padre
(Sayings of my Father)

Dichos de mi Padre (Sayings of my Father) is a personal reflection of dichos, also known as folk wisdom, passed on from grandparent to parent to child. Dichos, are something everyone can relate to in life. They are universal.

The stories contained in this book give the reader insight into Mexican culture, family traditions and values, and spirituality. You will also learn about family history. Dichos de mi Padre honors our ancestors and expresses the pride of being a Mexican-American.

We all stand on the shoulders of our parents, grandparents, great- grandparents, uncles and aunts. They influence us and contribute to who we are. This is a book about family and the richness of our connections and the values we hold dear.​
