Description


Un hombre, sus burros y sus libros llevan la alegría a aldeas remotas en Colombia en este inspirador libro basado en una historia real, escrita e ilustrada por la celebrada creadora de libros para niños Jeanette Winter, ahora disponible en español.

A Luis le encanta leer, pero en poco tiempo su casa en Colombia está tan llena de libros que casi no hay espacio para la familia. ¿Qué va a hacer? Entonces se le ocurre la solución perfecta: ¡una biblioteca ambulante! Compra dos burros —Alfa y Beto— y con ellos viaja a través de campos y montañas para llevar los libros y la lectura a niños en aldeas lejanas.

Incluye una nota de la autora acerca del hombre real en cuya historia se basa este libro.
