Follow Paloma as she travels through all the regions of Peru, is it a dream or she actually flying through the air to explore the Sierra, Costa, and the Selva.
Through Paloma’s journeys, children learn key lessons in sharing, protecting the environment and joy of traveling.
As a response to the needs of children and request from parents of the Backpack Project, Yenny Delgado (writer) and Randy Delgado (illustrator) developed Paloma por el Peru a children’s book in Spanish. Paloma por el Peru is the first in a series of five books that will be developed.
The book is being used as a tool to encourage reading as well as to help finance the Backpack Project. For every book sold in the United States it covers the cost of putting a book in the backpack of one of the children.
