Summary
  • "Ana ama las historias. Pero en su pequeño pueblo, hay pocos libros y ella ya los ha leído todos. Una mañana, Ana se despierta con el clip-clop de cascos y la maravillosa imagen de dos burros cargando una biblioteca repleta de todos los libros que una niña pequeña pueda desear. Inspirado por los esfuerzos heroicos de una bibliotecario verdadero llamado Luis Soriano Bohórquez"--Jacket flap
  • When a man brings to a remote village two burros, Alfa and Beto, loaded with books the children can borrow, Ana's excitement leads her to write a book of her own as she waits for the Biblioburro to return. Includes glossary of Spanish terms and a note on the true story of Colombia's Biblioburro and mobile libraries in other countries
