Introduce your little ones to the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City, Pura Belpré, in both English and Spanish with The Life of / La Vida de Pura: A Bilingual Picture Book Biography.

A gifted puppeteer and storyteller, Pura Belpré captivated millions of bilingual readers across New York City – and worldwide. Her children’s book, Perez y Martina, became the first Spanish language children’s book published by a mainstream U.S. press. She left such a lasting impact on the reading world and Puerto Rican community that the Pura Belpré Award is named after her legacy.
