Summary
  • Nonfiction picture book about the life and legacy of Pura Belpré, the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City
  • "From the author of Monster Truck and Starring Carmen comes a gorgeous and lyrical story about Pura Belpré, a Puerto Rican librarian who changed the world"--
  • Follow la vida y el legado of Pura Belpré, the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City. When she came to America in 1921, Pura carried the cuentos folklóricos of her Puerto Rican homeland. Finding a new home at the New York Public Library as a bilingual assistant, she turned her popular retellings into libros and spread story seeds across the land. Today, these seeds have grown into a lush landscape as generations of children and storytellers continue to share her tales and celebrate Pura's legacy. This portrait of the influential librarian, author, and puppeteer reminds us of the power of storytelling and the extraordinary woman who opened doors and championed bilingual literature. --
