    1. Waiting for the Biblioburro featuring a wonderful, evocative narrative by Monica Brown and John Parra s equally enchanting accompanying illustrations is the inspiring and thought provoking story about a librarian in Colombia, who delivers and distributes his library books, not from the distribution desk of a building, not even from a motorised bookmobile, but using two trusted mules, Alfa and Beto the two first letters of the alphabet And of course, Waiting for the Bibliloburro is also a sweet a [...]

    3. We recently read Biblioburro A True Story from Colombia by Jeanette Winter and learned about Se or Luis Soriano Bohorquez s efforts to bring books to children in Columbia So when we saw this book was about the same subject, but from a child s perspective, I was eager to read it The narrative is very engaging and the illustrations are colorful I loved how Spanish words are incorporated into the story and help children learn a few words of the language through the context of the story We really en [...]


    4. Another wonderful story about Luis, his traveling library and his burros Alfa and Beto I first learned the true story of Luis after reading Biblioburro A True Story from Colombia and while that book focused mainly on Luis and how the Biblioburro came to be, this book tells the story of a little girl named Ana who loves to read and the first time Luis visits her village.Beautifully written and features an author s note on other traveling libraries around the world, the real Luis, as well as a glo [...]

    6. This has been one of my favorite books to read aloud in class I had 3rd graders It ties in my love of world news geography world news because it s the story of a real person, still alive, and geography because the students got to hear about Colombia The students loved it, my Spanish speaking students could help me with the pronunciation, and the pictures are great.



    7. Waiting for the Biblioburro is an engaging story about a young girl, Ana, and her love of books despite having limited access to them When a librarian goes above and beyond to bring books to children in the villages, we see how devoted Ana is to storytelling and how rich it makes her imagination As I was reading about how much Ana loved reading I actually got teary eyed Author Monica Brown s 2011 picture book is based on the real life librarian, Luis Soriano Bohorquez, who really used two burros [...]


    8. Oh, I just loved this book The only thing I wasn t wild about were the way people s faces were painted However, the loved everything else about the illustrations The scenery, the colors, the folk art feel, and how all the pictures contributed mightily to making this story so engaging.I ve read other books about traveling libraries but this is the only one I can think of where the biblioburro s patrons are encouraged to write as well as read.The story is lovely I like the real feeling of suspense [...]

    12.

    13. Primary Waiting for the Biblioburro by Monica Brown1 Text to world would be a good category for this book Students can discuss how the way Ana is able to borrow books through the biblioburro in Columbia, is different and similar to the way they borrow books in the United States This can also allow the reader to reflect upon how this book relates to themselves and the world in which they live.2 Remembering How does Ana get books to read living in such a small village Understanding How would you d [...]


    14.

    16. bookaday 24 Lovely book about something my students take for granted, especially during the school year, access to library books For someone who has a healthy fear of the book emergency, I can t imagine not having access to as many books as I want I have seen some of Colombia s remote rural areas many years ago as an exchange student, many thanks to Luis Soriano Bohorquez, on whom this story is based, for his service to the children of Colombia.


    17. A lovely story about a library that travels via burro Recommended for public and school libraries I have to admit that I liked Biblioburro A True Story from Colombia better Monica Brown s story is very well done and I also recommend it


    18. We liked this story of the Biblioburro even better than the first I think it was because it follows the perspective of a little girl We were struck by how exciting it must be to wait for a book and how sad that she only had one book to begin with.


    19. I think I am a sucker for stories about people who managed to find ways to bring children and adults books in rural areas This is just that kind of storya man with two burros who travel around bringing books to children.




    20. Monica Brown does another amazing job telling a sweet Latino story In this book, Ana is a young girl who loves to read From the beginning, the reader learns that Ana is sleeping in a house on a hill She has chores when she wakes up and after those are complete, her mother, baby brother, and Ana take a walk down the hill She longs to be back at her cool home, reading a book Her first and only book came from a teacher Unfortunately, this teacher had to move away and now there is no one left to tea [...]


    21. I loved this book Waiting for the Biblioburro, is a realistic fiction story about a girl growing up in a remote town in Central America After her teacher left, the town had no one left to teach the children and books were in scarce supply The main character, Ana, has only one book she can read and she has read it so many times she has it memorized She enjoys making up stories and telling them to her younger sibling, but it is just not the same as having a book in her hand to read Then one day a [...]


    22. I loved this picture book the first time I read it since it features a young girl in rural Columbia who craves reading materials, and when no new books arrive for a period of time, she writes her own book The fact that her village has no library but ends up relying on one man who has two burros who transport books from place to place touched me, especially since the story is based on a real life literary hero, Luis Soriano Bohorquez I can only imagine the excitement with which those young reader [...]


    23. Ana loves stories but only has one book until a traveling librarian brings books to her small village She is delighted to finally read and learn This book is based on the real life story of librarian Luis Soriano Boh rquez.I loved the text of this book and how it gently tells about a little girl who has only one book Each page has the words in English and Spanish making it helpful for English Language Learners A great book for any classroom.Books to read that connect to Waiting for the Bibliobur [...]


    24. Ana is sad Her teacher has moved away and there is no one in the village to help her read and write She has only one book which her teacher gave her last year She has read it so many times she has it memorized Then one day a man with two burros comes into town His burros are loaded down with books The man is a librarian He sits under a tree with the children and reads books He lets the children take books home with the until he returns But it takes him so long to return that Ana worries he will [...]


    25. I love this story Not only does it have both Spanish and English vocabulary, but it shows how different communities can be both similar and different at the same time The young girl in the story doesn t have access to the same things we usually do here, but her love for reading is obvious and maybe even greater than many of students here might have The illustrations, acrylics on boards, are enchanting and really draw you in This book offers great background and information into other cultures.


    26. I read 5 books to a 6 year old yesterday She picked 4 of the books, and I picked Waiting for the Biblioburro She loved this book, and wanted to give it 5 stars She is hispanic, and seemed to enjoy the Spanish words she corrected my pronunciation, which was so cute I asked her what she liked best, and she said that she liked the way the girl told her brother stories, and when she bugged her mother asking her when the Biblioburro was coming back She was amazed that it was a true book I am thinking [...]


    27. This book shows a young girl who loves reading The illustrations really support the diversity of this book because the illustration is of a young girl of Hispanic descent who has a librarian who comes to her village to help her find stories to read, so that she can increase her literacy, especially because she loves reading This is great because it shows that reading is a love for everyone rather than specific to a certain race or gender, and it is something that other children will be able to r [...]
