Tomás loves stories. Grandfather tells them every night during the summer when the family leaves Texas to pick crops in Iowa. Soon Tomás knows all the stories by heart. A chance encounter brings him to the local library where he meets the “library lady” who encourages his love of reading. His delight in books is equaled by his pride in teaching the librarian Spanish, trading knowledge and respect between generations and cultures. Tomás develops great pride in becoming his family’s new storyteller.
