Along with the help of his two sturdy burros: Alfa and Beto, they start a 'blibloburro bookmobile' of sorts,. Together Luis and his two burros transport the books to people in the the hills of Columbia who have none. Each weekend when they make the trip, Luis reads the children a story and then the children get to select a book.
Biblioburro, is a delight for children and adults, and of course book lovers. It is based on a true story. The burro bookmobile began in 2000 with about 70 books and has grown to almost 4,800, mostly due to donations.
The book is complete with vivid, colorful illustrations in folkart style that are sure to please.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - 5/5 stars (Library Book)
