She Persisted: Pura Belpré

Pura Belpré grew up in Puerto Rico surrounded by stories. When she moved to New York and was offered the chance to work at the New York Public Library, she was thrilled to be able to help share her stories with children — especially multicultural and multilingual children like her. She persisted in bringing Spanish and bilingual storytelling and books to libraries across the city and across the country, and she wrote books and stories of her own to bring even more of her culture to people everywhere. She changed the way libraries reach readers even to this day!

In this chapter book from the best-selling She Persisted series, authors Meg Medina and Marilisa Jiménez García tell Pura Belpré's inspiring story in short, accessible chapters with spot illustrations throughout. It even includes a list of ways that kids can follow in her footprints and make their own difference in the world!
