Some relationships are so special they have the power to change lives forever. Tomás, the son of migrant workers, spends long, hot days in the fields harvesting crops. But when he meets a kind librarian, she helps him find escape from the heat in the form of thousands of books. Soon his imagination takes off and Tomás discovers a whole new world of possibilities! This heartwarming story (based on the beloved book by Pat Mora) illustrates the power of positive encouragement and how believing in someone can help them conquer fears and do exceptional things.
A play in both Spanish and English based on the inspiring true story of the Mexican-American author and educator, Tomás Rivera.
