Tomás loves stories and Papa Grande tells them to him todas las noches! One day while his family is in Iowa picking crops, Tomás meets the Library Lady and nothing is ever the same again. Soon his imagination takes off as he reads book after book, discovering a world filled with dinosaurs, tigers, and explorers! Based on the true story of Tomás Rivera and the book by Pat Mora, Childsplay brings back this favorite play with music celebrating reading, imagination and creativity.
