Staff Review: "Planting Stories: The Life of Librarian and Storyteller Pura Belpré " by Anika Aldamuy Denise, Paola Escobar

★★★★★

This was a really impactful story about the life of Pura Belpré, author, puppeteer, and librarian from Puerto Rico. Not only was this a story about the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York, this is a heartwarming story about the impact librarians have on their community.

I really enjoyed learning about the life of Pura Belpré, and appreciated the bilingual aspect of this book as well.
