Sí, poesía

Luis Mariá Pescetti
Unidos contra Drácula
(United Against Dracula))GL K-3

In this compilation, the author invites us to play with sounds, meanings, and the rhythm of words. The illustrated poems have a variety of motifs, such as insects, stars, people in love, the calendar, and some witches who go to the supermarket.

This book provides an opportunity to introduce children to the musicality of language in a simple way.

 

Querido hijo: estamos en huelga

Jordi Sierra i Fabra
Querido hijo: estamos en huelga
(Dear Son: We’re On Strike)
GL 4-8

Felipe never helps at home; he’s rude, disobedient, and furthermore, he finished the school year with bad grades. He knows that a big punishment is waiting for him, but it doesn’t happen! His parents don’t say anything—moreover, they practically ignore him. What could they be thinking? Are they aliens? Have they been abducted? Even worse, they have declared a strike! A story about the rights and responsibilities of parents and their children.

With an ironic tone and a large dose of humor, this novel brings us the reality of a careless boy who finds himself obliged to reflect on his poor behavior and how it affects those who live with him.

Mamá, ¿por qué nadie es como nosotros?

 Luis María Pescetti
Mamá, ¿por qué nadie es como nosotros?
(Mom, Why Is Nobody Like Us?)
GL 3-5

Each family has different characteristics: some speak in a special way or have beliefs or customs different from our own. When reading this book, filled with images by various illustrators that show different points of view, children will be able to realize that, despite the similarities and differences between families, we all have the same rights.

While he generally tells humorous stories, this time Pescetti addresses a delicate topic—that is, the different types of families—to create a book that is as fun as it is educational, ideal for working on peace education in schools.

 

Querido hijo: estás despedido

Jordi Sierra i Fabra
Querido hijo: estás despedido
(Dear Son: You’re Fired) GL 4-8

Miguel is a careless boy who leaves everything out of place, breaks whatever is in his path, and doesn’t obey his parents. Tired, they decide to give him a month to look for a place to live: they have fired him. Time passes, Miguel doesn’t listen, and he suddenly finds himself in the street with nowhere to go, and with a profound regret for not having listened to his parents.

A tale in which the author offers a critical yet funny look at the relationship between parents and lazy, irresponsible children who wear them out.

Salvemos a nuestros monstruos

Gabriela Leveroni
Salvemos a nuestros monstruos
(Save Our Monsters) 
GL K-3

One night, Claudia discovers a horrible purple monster under her bed. Her reaction? Scream hysterically and run to tell her mother. Mama calms down Claudia, telling her that her dad will throw the monster out of the house. But Claudia starts to worry: if her dad throws him out, where will the monster live? What will become of him?

Ingenious and sensitive story in which goodness overcomes fear of differences.
