"Me quedaré tan quieta como una tortuga."

Una biblioteca para JuanaPrometió la pequeña que amaba las palabras, Juana Inés, en su primer día de escuela. Cuando tenía tres años, Juana Inés siguió a su hermana a la escuela y se quedó mirando a través de la ventana, luego le rogó a la maestra que la dejara entrar para que ella también pudiera aprender a leer. Pronto, comenzó a inventar cuentos, canciones y poemas--amaba aprender tanto como amaba leer--. ¡Soñaba con tener su propia colección de libros! Aunque Sor Juana Inés murió en 1695, todavía se le considera una de las escritoras más sobresalientes de la historia de México. No sólo todos los niños de las escuelas recitan sus poemas en su país natal, si no que su obra se estudia en escuelas y universidades en todo el mundo. Esta es su historia, una historia maravillosa, llena de logros e inspiración, contada con la delicadeza literaria de la conocida escritora de libros infantiles, Pat Mora, e ilustrada con los hermosos dibujos de Beatriz Vidal.

From the Inside Flap:

Juana Inés was just a little girl in a village in Mexico when she decided that the thing she wanted most in the world was her very own collection of books, just like in her grandfather?s library. When she found out that she could learn to read in school, she begged to go. And when she later discovered that only boys could attend university, she dressed like a boy to show her determination to attend. Word of her great intelligence soon spread, and eventually, Juana Inés was considered one of the best scholars in the Americas?something unheard of for a woman in the 17th century.

Today, this important poet is revered throughout the world and her verse is memorized by schoolchildren all over Mexico.
