There are a couple fantastic kid’s books available for your Cuban unit study with preschoolers and kindergarteners. One of my daughter’s favorite books is Drum Dream Girl. The book has lovely, colorful illustrations and shares the real life story of musician Millo Castro Zaldarriaga, who broke the traditional taboo against female drummers in Cuba.
- Hardcover Book
- Engle, Margarita (Author)
- English (Publication Language)
And, of course, you can’t talk about Cuban music without mentioning Celia Cruz! My husband remembers her funeral celebration in Miami. This book is a little long for toddlers, but slightly older ids (4 or 5 and up, depending on your child) will love the story and bright illustrations.

What are Do a Dot marker pages?
Dab it marker coloring pages, also called “Do a Dot pages” after the popular Do a Dot marker brand, are pages with blank circles on the images. Many of the dot marker pages I share are coloring pages, but I felt like Cuban dot marker pages had to be in color.
Your child or student uses a bingo-style dot/dauber marker to fill in the circle to complete the page. It’s fantastic fine motor and hand-eye coordination practice for little learners! Your child can also use manipulatives, like pompoms, or round stickers to cover the circles.
This set of dot marker pages will also help introduce Cuban culture to your child with colorful images including:
- Colorful Havana buildings
- A classic car
- Coffee (beans, sack, and cup)
- A guitar
- A Cuban trogon bird
- The Havana cathedral (Catedral de San Cristóbal)
- People in traditional dress
How to use dot marker pages
The circles on these dot marker pages are based on the size of my daughter’s Classic Do a Dot Markers. The circles on your printable are sized for this brand of markers, but they also work with other dauber or bingo style markers. It’s important to make sure you print at 100% so the circles are the correct size.
My favorite way to use dot it printables is with round coding label stickers. We use these stickers. They are the just the right size to fit the circles on these pages. You get thousands of them for just a few dollars. You can encourage your child to match colors between the stickers and the background images (when possible) and bring the pages in the car or to a restaurant because no markers means no mess!
Make sure to get 5/8″ or 3/4″ round stickers. One inch round stickers are too big for these pages. One inch stickers are less common – most of the stickers you find are a usable size, but double check just in case.
