Product Overview

The winter of 1929 feels especially cold to cousins Hildamar and Santiagothey arrived in New York City from sunny Puerto Rico only months before. Their island home feels very far away indeed, especially with Three Kings' Day rapidly approaching. But then a magical thing happened. A visitor appears in their class, a gifted storyteller and librarian by the name of Pura Belpr. She opens the children's eyes to the public library and its potential to be the living, breathing heart of the community. The library, after all, belongs to everyonewhether you speak Spanish, English, or both. The award-winning team of Luca Gonzlez and Lulu Delacre have crafted an homage to Pura Belpr, New York Citys first Latina librarian. Through her vision and dedication, the warmth of Puerto Rico came to the island of Manhattan in a most unexpected way.
