The Life of a Puerto Rican Poet Aug 30, 2006
Ages 8 to 10 will enjoy this story of Julia, told in verse, the story of a girl born into a humble Puerto Rican family at the beginning of last century. With beautiful illustrations, it re-creates the time in which she grew up, and narrates how she became one of Puerto Rico's and Latin America's most beloved poets. Her name is Julia de Burgos and this is her life, before she was big.
