Summary
  • 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 Columbia's Biblioburro and mobile libraries in other countries
  • 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
