Planting Stories: The Life of Librarian and Storyteller Pura Belpré
A picture book biography of Pura Belpré, the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City.
When she came to America in 1921, Pura Belpré carried the cuentos folklóricos of her Puerto Rican homeland. Finding a new home at the New York Public Library as a bilingual assistant, she turned her popular retellings into libros and spread story seeds across the land. Today, these seeds have grown into a lush landscape as generations of children and storytellers continue to share her tales and celebrate Pura's legacy.
