Derived from Mexican Mesoamerican wisdom, this series of poetic board books center around establishing an authentic, heartfelt connection with and respect for nature.
Using Mexican concepts, this poignantly lyrical series invites young children to pay witness to nature, to value it, and to become a steward of the planet. The moon’s phases – new, waxing, full, and waning – are seamlessly intertwined with our own natural cadences, showcasing the power and beauty of universal interconnectedness. Acclaimed middle-grade author Aida Salazar lovingly turns her attention to the youngest readers, bringing her signature lyrical text, in English with a few Spanish words interwoven. With vibrant, mystical art, this book is a truly meaningful and formative experience for all young readers.
NOTE: A second book in the series is under contract. Penguin has North American Spanish rights. For illustration rights, please contact subsidiary rights representative Siaurui Goh - email@example.com.
