In Amanuta our books seek respect for the planet and all its inhabitants. Many of the themes in our books are committed to environmental issues, the natural and cultural heritage of our country and our continent. We traveled so far, Flight of american birds, insectopedia, The chucao, The Larch, The monkey of the mount, Explore your natural worldare some of our titles with themes directly related to the environment, flora and fauna of our country and the American continent.
Books give us the opportunity to reach many children, where all are considered and valued regardless of their origin, beliefs, sexuality, gender, appearance and physical abilities. For this reason we have created books on indigenous peoples, physical disabilities and inclusion, among other topics. We are hopeful that more and more girls and boys in Amanuta will find themes that motivate, excite, dignify and empower them.
Our goal is to eliminate the plastic from the packaging that our readers receive. For this, in 2021 we have developed a new environment-friendly packaging. We present it to you here.
More than 2.000 books donated each year.
We are convinced that knowing reading is essential to develop autonomously in society. And that reading goes beyond the mere decoding of a written text.
The OECD defines it as "the ability of the individual to understand, use, reflect on texts and commit to them, in order to achieve personal goals, develop knowledge and personal potential and participate in society."
At the same time, reading regularly allows you to broaden your knowledge of the world, reflect on different topics, train your aesthetic sensibility, achieve greater self-knowledge, learn to put yourself in the place of others and to become an individual within society. .
Reading from an early age generates great benefits for children: it promotes oral and written expression skills, increases vocabulary, stimulates imagination, as well as emotional experiences developing empathy, and positively prepares them for future school performance.
This is why, in Amanuta we seek to promote reading through book donations, author visits to schools and libraries, talks and workshops, and much more. In this way reaching schools, libraries and low-income families throughout Chile.
Each year, our Amanuta Solidario program donates more than 2.000 books throughout Chile. Some of our activities:
- In 2018 and 2019: Fundación Arauco, Fundación Futuro, Hogar de Cristo, Municipality of Renca, Greenlibros (greenbooks.cl).
- Friends of Panguipulli Advancement Corporation for the Cultural Baskets program for low-income schoolchildren in the Panguipulli commune, to accompany and contribute with cultural activities to children who are at home during the pandemic.
- Municipal Corporation of Renca for the program "I learn playing ... from the garden to the house." Delivery of books to complement the activities that children develop from their homes during the pandemic.
