Adela y los calcetines desaparecidos

De Florencia Herrera
Illustrated by Bernadette Ojeda

Adela can't find her socks in her closet. Adela does not recognize her neighbors. Many things begin to disappear around him. But it is not that things are not. It is she who cannot see them. Little by little he gets used to not seeing and begins to use his other senses. Adela and the missing socks is an autobiographical book on visual impairment, a subject treated with great tenderness and humor. The illustrations by Bernardita Ojeda are full of color and accompany the story with many details, which will hold the attention of children from beginning to end. An excellent book to understand visual impairment.

I loved

A book that helps explain to children about the lack of any of the senses, to be aware of it, how difficult it can be and all that. And on the other hand, a story of overcoming obstacles. Terrific.
