Waiting for the Biblioburro

by the Brightly Editors


¡Vamos! It’s time for a new episode of Brightly Storytime, our read-aloud video series for kids. Get ready for Waiting for the Biblioburro, a beautiful picture book inspired by the real-life traveling librarian, Luis Soriano Bohorquez. Ana loves the Biblioburro, the mobile library that brings books to the children of her small village on the backs of two donkeys. While Ana awaits the Biblioburro’s return, she gets an idea for her own story.
