Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A remarkable tale of books and reading, now in a bilingual Spanish-English edition.

On most days, teacher and librarian Luis Soriano Boh rquez packs his two burros, Alfa and Beto, with books and makes his way over mountains and through valleys to visit children in far-flung villages in rural Colombia--all for the sake of literacy and culture. Based on the work of a remarkable man and his intrepid burros, this bilingual English and Spanish edition celebrates the impact that a special mobile library--called the biblioburro--has had on the lives of real children.
