Biblioburro: The Donkey Library

Find this book HERE
"Children are made readers
on the laps of their parents."
Emilie Buchwald

In a world often full of sad and depressing news, it's a real welcomed treat to come across a nice and wholesome feel-good story for a change. This is one such story.

Meet a school teacher from La Gloria in Columbia by the name of Luis Soriano. His passion for almost thirty years now has been to bring books to less fortunate children right into their communities. Since these children had no other access to reading material, Mr. Soriano was concerned that they were unable to even do their homework.

Assisting him, often several times a week and over countless kilometres, are his two cleverly-named donkeys, Alfa and Beto. Together they form the Spanish word for alphabet: Alfabeto. Untold thousands of children have benefited over the years by the Biblioburro. This story made my day. Kudos to Luis Soriano.
