A touching and compelling book about how some librarians travel the world in impossible ways--by boat, donkey, elephant, and more-- hoping to change a child's life, by handing them a book.

From Colombia to Kenya and Syria to Thailand, real life librarians bring books to children who don't have easy access to a library. This creative non-fiction tale shows how librarians in 10 countries travel far and wide to deliver books to hungry readers without local access to libraries. A wonderful way to educate readers on the often overlooked, heroic lives of librarians.

All around the world, children wait for books.


book lovers' cross seas,

trek up narrow trails,

down steep, rocky paths,

over swift rivers,

and through dark forests.

They journey by foot,

on sturdy animals,

and with unique vehicles,

delivering books to children.
