Armando and the Blue Tarp School by Edith Hope Fine and Judith Pinkerton Josephson, illustrated by Hernán Sosa [in Bloomsbury Review]

Armando and the Blue Tarp SchoolBecause he must help his father, Armando does not have time to attend Señor David’s school, made of a single blue tarp spread on the ground. When his parents realize that education is Armando’s only way out of their impoverished circumstances, they give him the afternoons to learn about the world beyond their garbage dump. This story is based on the experiences of a real-life teacher who spent decades teaching some of Mexico’s poorest children.
