¿Por qué llora el oso?

By María Luz Malamud
Illustrated by Nella Gatica

For lovers of animal.
For lovers of Nature.
To connect with emotions and friendship.

Everything is sadness in the life of the bear, who cries incessantly. In the forest they wonder what the reason for her tears is, but no one seems to have the answer. It will only be towards the end that we will discover why the bear is crying. Could the little house he carries on his hand have anything to do with it? A tender rhymed book full of emotions.
