Summary
"After amassing piles of books, Luis, a voracious reader, dreams up a way to share his collection with 'faraway villages.' He starts with two burros--one for himself, one for books--and heads off. Tough terrain and menacing bandits challenge him along the way, but at last he reaches a remote town, where he holds a story hour and loans titles to eager kids before returning home to his wife and reading late into the night."--Amazon.com
Summary
Recounts the true story of a devoted man and his steadfast burro team, Alfa and Beto, who traveled into the remote villages of rural Colombia to bring treasured library books to eager young readers
