Let's Celebrate Gabriela Mistral
These poems speak about the nature of the Chilean countryside, of its animals, its aromas, and its stars. These are verses that invite us to direct our gaze from the Earth to the sky, from the smallest things to the most magnificent. The rhymes and poems compiled in this anthology introduce children to the works of Gabriela Mistral, and allow them to enjoy this poetry that is “infused with heart” by the only female Latin American author to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.
|About Gabriela Mistral|
70 years ago, the Chilean poet, educator, and humanist Gabriela Mistral became the first Latin American writer to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature “for her lyric poetry which, inspired by powerful emotions, has made her name a symbol of the idealistic aspirations of the entire Latin American world.” This new anthology offers young readers a taste of Mistral’s work and complements the biographical picture book Conoce a Gabriela Mistral written by renowned children’s author Georgina Lázaro León—a backlist jewel.
