About the Author
Pat Mora, a Chicana educator, is a published poet and the author of several books for children. Raul Colón was awarded the Silver Medal by the Society of Illustrators for Always My Dad, his first children's book.
"Spanish words slip in naturally throughout Mora's text as she focuses on the snug library and the books that fire Tomas's imagination .... While young readers will find this an inspiring tale, the endnote gives it a real kick: the story is based on an actual migrant worker [Tomas Rivera]".
