Waiting for the Biblioburro / Esperando el Biblioburro [hc]
English & Spanish edition
Written by Monica Brown & illustrated by John Parra
A remarkable tale of books and reading, now in a bilingual Spanish-English edition.
On most days, teacher and librarian Luis Soriano Bohórquez 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. 32 pages
