Book Description:

Ana loves stories. She often makes them up to help her little brother fall asleep. But in her small village there are only a few books and she has read them all. One morning, Ana wakes up to the clip-clop of hooves, and there before her, is the most wonderful sight: a traveling library resting on the backs of two burros‑all the books a little girl could dream of, with enough stories to encourage her to create one of her own.

Reviewers Thoughts

Rating: 3 of 5 stars

A little girl loves books, but the only one she has to read is the only one her family owns; and that one she has memorized. Then one day, a man with two donkeys comes to her village carrying piles of books. This is a story that shows how fortunate we are, here in America, to have so many books at our disposal.
