This book was recommended to me by a fellow librarian and given that it was just published our academic library didn't yet have it  And considering our academic library serves a large community of library science students I figured that we could get away with purchasing resources about librarians  So we did  Planting Stories is a beautiful biographical tale about Pura Belpre who made space for herself and her culture in her library  The focus is on her work as a librarian rather than her as a wife or parent which was justincredible  Finally a biography about a specific aspect of a person's life that doesn't completely shift focus into her home life  Not only that but the illustrations are absolutely beautiful they're colorful evocative bright joyful  I'm going to definitely keep an eye on this book as the year continues  I think this book will make its way into award committee meetings either for its nonfiction genre or for its illustrations  I mean maybe it's my own bias of absolute love for this book but I also think that this book if widely recognized will take the literary world by storm  I'm excited to see where it goesReview cross listed here

Planting Stories The Life of Librarian and Storyteller Pura BelpréLic Library as a bilingual assistant she turned her popular stories into libros and spread story seeds across the land Today these seeds have grown into a lush landscape as generations of children and cuentistas continue to sha. This is the kind of picture book biography that belongs on any librarian’s shelves not only because the illustrations and endpapers are absolutely gorgeous but because the story of Pura Belpre’s lasting impact on children’s librarianship and the Latinx community is both a wonder and an inspiration My favorite picture book bio featuring a librarian to date
