RECIPIENT OF THE PURA BELPR HONOR * A Today Show's Best Kids' Books of 2019 * Indie Next List Pick * Junior Library Guild Selection * Sigue la vida y el legado de Pura Belpr, la primera bibliotecaria puertorriquea de la ciudad de Nueva York. Cuando lleg a Estados Unidos en el ao 1921, Pura trajo consigo los cuentos folklricos de su tierra natal, Puerto Rico. Encontr su nuevo hogar en la Biblioteca Pblica de Nueva York como ayudante bilinge. Logr que sus relatos se convirtieran en libros y esparci las semillas de sus historias por todo el pas. Hoy da, esas semillasse han transformado en exuberantes paisajes gracias a que las nuevas generaciones de nios y cuentacuentos han seguido contando sus historias y celebrando el legado de Pura. Este magnfico retrato de la bibliotecaria, autora y marionetista nos recuerda el poder de la narracin de cuentos, y a la mujer extraordinaria que abri las puertas y defendi la idea de la literatura bilinge.

Sembrando Historias, Pura Belpre: Bibliotecaria y Narradora de cuentos by Anika Aldamuy Denise and illustrated by Paola Escobar is a B-RA/PR/AS/IR picture book about the life and contributions of Pura Belpre. While there is an English version of this book, I think it is beneficial for teachers to also have Spanish versions for their ESOL students. #UCFLAE3414SP21

melodyp This book is a Pura Belpre honor book, as well as silver medalist of the Children‘s Book Committee‘s Best Spanish Language Picture Books of the Year Award.
UDL 2.4 (promote understanding across languages) and EL 24 (incorporate the culture and language of second language learners in your curriculum) are excellent strategies to use when teaching this book.
The website https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?tid=66246#Resources has great resources.

PatriciaS This wonderful book is a great addition to any classroom library 😊 I am adding it to my list. Thank you for your review 👍 and another resource to add for ELL students too. 2y
DrSpalding Teaching books is a good resource. Your English learner strategy is spot on. Children need to learn from picture book biographies! English learner 28 works well with all biographies that we expose students to at the elementary level. 2y
