We recently read Biblioburro: A True Story from Colombia by Jeanette Winter and learned about Señor Luis Soriano Bohorquez's efforts to bring books to children in Columbia. So when we saw this book was about the same subject, but from a child's perspective, I was eager to read it. The narrative is very engaging and the illustrations are colorful. I loved how Spanish words are incorporated into the story and help children learn a few words of the language through the context of the story. We really enjoyed reading this story together.

This story was selected as one of the books for the March 2012 - Library reads at the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at Goodreads.
