Join us October 1st at Bookworks from 5:00-7:00 pm to discuss our next book. We are reading The Dreamer by Pam Muñoz Ryan and Peter Sís. It has received numerous awards including the Américas Award and the Pura Bulpré Medal.
Here’s a sneak peek about the book-“From the time he is a young boy, Neftalí hears the call of a mysterious voice. Even when the neighborhood children taunt him, and when his harsh, authoritarian father ridicules him, and when he doubts himself, Neftalí knows he cannot ignore the call. Under the canopy of the lush rain forest, into the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain, he listens and he follows. Combining elements of magical realism with biography, poetry, literary fiction, and sensorial, transporting illustrations, Pam Muñoz Ryan and Peter Sís take readers on a rare journey of the heart and imagination.” (http://www.amazon.com/Dreamer-Notable-Childrens-Books-Readers/dp/0439269709)
