Book Overview

A Common Core Exemplar Text by an award-winning author-illustrator team

Tom s is a son of migrant workers. Every summer he and his family follow the crops north from Texas to Iowa, spending long, arduous days in the fields. At night they gather around to hear Grandfather's wonderful stories. But before long, Tom s knows all the stories by heart. There are more stories in the library, Papa Grande tells him. The very next day, Tom s meets the library lady and a whole new world opens up for him.

Based on the true story of the Mexican-American author and educator Tom s Rivera, a child of migrant workers who went on to become the first minority Chancellor in the University of California system, this inspirational story suggests what libraries--and education--can make possible. Raul Col n's warm, expressive paintings perfectly interweave the harsh realities of Tom s's life, the joyful imaginings he finds in books, and his special relationships with a wise grandfather and a caring librarian.

A gentle text and innovative artwork. . . . While young readers and future librarians will find this an inspiring tale, the end note gives it a real kick: the story is based on an actual migrant worker Tom s Rivera] who became chancellor of a university--where the library now bears his name.--Publishers Weekly
