Interestingly, it appears that the majority of indigenous people who are literate are women and children Green, Rick, and Nesman And, because family loyalty is far more important than any other attribute in Guatemala, literacy is often shared, so that family members who can read allocate what they know, often by reading to others in the family or community who cannot read. The universal power of story, however, remains strong, both in the Mayan and latino cultures of Guatemala. There are a fair number of books available in Spanish and many in English for those who have access to these languages and to the books themselves.
And the Mayan tradition of storytelling is still alive and well. Even children who have been traumatized in guerilla warfare find healing in the sharing of their personal narratives with others. Thus, stories are an integral part of the social tapestry. In terms of reading material, however, there is little for Mayan children to read in their native language. A few books are accessible that are mainly reprints of Mayan codices, written in hieroglyphics, which contain passages of the sacred book, the Popol Vuh Saravia.
These glyphs are written within a phonological and grammatical system which combines sounds, ideas, and syllables. While there is a move afoot among modern Mayans to bring the role of writing back into fashion in Mayan culture, the progress is slow. Most indigenous people would rather try to move up the social ladder in their education by learning Spanish and English. If the social ladder isn't their goal, then many Mayans fail to see the need for reading and writing at all. The current literacy movement involves reeducating people about the need for writing to restore the traditional Mayan culture and to bring back stories that were destroyed after the Conquest.
While many stories have been kept alive via the oral storytelling tradition, and others have been translated into other written languages, few have been preserved in Mayan glyphs. The Mayan Academy of Language, in conjunction with interested citizens and educators, is working to educate children in bilingual classes which use Spanish and indigenous languages and to help to unify the linguistic problems inherent in a language with as many dialects as Mayan.
Perhaps most important to the movement is the aspect of handing down the Mayan cultures to future generations. In spite of the Conquistadors' attempts to destroy Mayan literature, particularly in the infamous book burnings of the late s, Mayan writing has enjoyed a longevity, if not popularity, which points out the tenacity of the Mayan cultures to endure. Early Mayans wrote with pen and ink on folded bark. It is evident, then, that reading, writing,  and storymaking are and have been important to both the latino and the indigenous peoples of Guatemala.
However, the abject poverty and the volatile political situation have put dampers on the spread of literacy and have muted the people's desires to read, especially for something as luxurious as a pastime activity. As one Guatemalan publisher put it, people do not go into the publishing business there to make money, because very few books are sold. This is particularly true in children's book publishing; therefore, most companies produce textbooks because there is very little market for children's trade literature.
Currently, there are no bookstores that cater only to children's books in Guatemala. In Guatemala City, where most of the publishing houses are located, there are several rather large, well-stocked bookstores which carry fairly sizeable numbers of children's textbooks and trade books. For example, scattered throughout the city are several satellite stores of the Piedra Santa publishing company which carry educational materials including books, maps, globes, and research material.
They also offer trade books which are often translations of Western classics or books which have been transplanted from other Spanish-speaking countries. For instance, Tianquis de nombres Ortiz , published in Mexico, is about a cockroach who tries to give everyone new names with disastrous results. Cuentos para vivir in paz Gemmell is a collection of stories about peace published by UNICEF in an effort to promote international understanding. Her stories are strongly indicative of the majority of children's books available in Guatemala in that they are didactic and moralistic in theme and tone.
The stories are obviously meant to leave an impression on young minds. In one issue, Superman is featured, and in another, the French children's book character, Babar, takes the spotlight. Also available at the Piedra Santa bookstores are English and bilingual titles. Young adult fiction, folklore collections, joke books, books about children's literature, and poetry collections can also be purchased at Piedra Santa stores. The Vista Hermosa bookstore in Guatemala City offers selections in English and Spanish; however, most of the store's offerings are in the English language.
For wealthy latinos, it is considered very prestigious to be fluent in English, or at least to be able to read English texts.

These books are available at minimal cost at a small outlet store across from the National Palace, and are generally poorly constructed with few illustrations. The latter book is specifically meant for students in the fifth grade. Many of these are beautifully illustrated picture books, all in Spanish, which are visually appealing and sell well to the tourist trade. There are very few English titles sold out side of Guatemala City because the economy cannot sustain a bilingual market.
Again, most of the books are Western translations or are Spanish originals imported from Spain, Mexico, or Editorial Norma. The stories are copyrighted by various publishers throughout Latin America, including Piedra Santa. In each book, there is at least one story from Guatemala, but other Latin American countries are also represented.
The selection of children's books becomes increasingly scarce the farther one ventures into the countryside. The children's books that are sold there are cheaply made paperbacks that are generally educational in nature. As always, the ever-present Walt Disney books and notebook covers abound. In the rural areas, no bookstores are to be found, although books have been placed in the schools by such gracious donors as Hofstra University, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich which donated over pounds of books in , the Nassau Reading Council from New York, and private Guatemalan foundations such as the Pediatrics Foundation and the Education Foundation Morales, personal interview.
