MY HERO recommends this book to children readers.

Luis loves to read, but soon his house in Colombia is so full of books there''s barely room for the family. What to do? Then he comes up with the perfect solution--a traveling library! He buys two donkeys--Alfa and Beto--and travels with them throughout the land, bringing books and reading to the children in faraway villages. Beautiful!

Complete with an author''s note about the real man on whom this story is based.
