Description


Una abuela y su nieta ayudan a un pájaro herido en esta conmovedora historia en español sobre el amor, la fascinación por la naturaleza, y sobre cómo dejar marchar

Un día de invierno una abuela y su nieta encuentran un pájaro herido.
Lo recogen y lo llevan a casa para curarlo, hasta que es capaz de volar por el salón. Es maravilloso... ¡Todo es maravilloso en casa de la abuela!
Pero un momento maravilloso también puede ser agridulce: el pájaro se ha recuperado y es hora de dejarlo volar libre.
Inspirada en una experiencia de su infancia, la historia que crea Blanca Gómez es aparentemente simple, pero intensa moral y emocionalmente. Una historia llena de amor y fascinación, y de un profundo respeto por la naturaleza.
 

About the Author


Blanca Gómez was born in Madrid. When she was a kid, she spent a lot of time at her grandma’s. There, she ate bread with olive oil for breakfast, ran away from the cat in the corridor, and bumped her head on the corner of the table quite often. So it makes sense that the first book she both wrote and illustrated talks about her grandma.

Praise For…


"The concise, well-worded text sets the tone and tells the story, while leaving plenty of space for the expressive digital illustrations to work their magic. Viewers can feel the chill in the winter-walk scenes and the brightness when spring arrives, but the warmth between the child and her grandmother is evident throughout the book." 
— Booklist

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Spanish author/illustrator Gómez’s semiautobiographical tribute to her own abuela is a charming window into an idyllic childhood infused with love for all living things. This little gem elicits a sense of deep-seated comfort and refuge for these uncertain times." 
— Kirkus Reviews
