Planting Stories: The Life of Librarian and Storyteller Pura Belpré
Planting Stories - The New York Public Library Shop

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.

This book is part of the NYPL 125 NYC Books We Love for Kids.
