Raúl the Third
¡Vamos! Let's Cross the Bridge!, Wednesday, October 20 | virtual

Raúl the Third is the Pura Belpré Honor-winning illustrator of ¡Vamos! Let's Go to the Market and ¡Vamos! Let's Go Eat. ¡Vamos! Let's Cross the Bridge is the latest book and he is currently working on the expanded world of his ¡Vamos! series. He grew up in El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juárez, México, and now lives in Boston, Massachusetts with colorist and collaborator Elaine Bay and their son, Raúl the Fourth.

We ♥ the t-shirts Raúl the Third designed for BBF 2020, and we’re thrilled to welcome him back as a presenter for BBF 2021! In this Story Time session, Raul will introduce viewers to Little Lobo and his friends, who, in ¡Vamos! Let’s Cross the Bridge, are delivering party supplies, only to get stuck in an epic traffic jam turned fiesta on the Mexico–United States border. Like Richard Scarry with a Mexican American spin, Raul’s latest book takes readers on a road trip to remember! Don’t miss our East Boston Story Walk featuring ¡Vamos! Let’s Cross the Bridge, too! Sponsored by Simmons University.

Donations made during registration or during the session itself will go to support the Boston Globe's Globe Santa program, gifting new books and toys to children in need this holiday season!
