Raíces del bosque

De Paulina Jara
Illustrated by mauma

In this book it is poetically and wonderfully illustrated how the trees of the forest share their food, unite to protect themselves, take care of their weakest individuals. They learned a precious life lesson long ago. This book tells us in verses this ancestral wisdom, invites us to immerse ourselves in the generosity of the roots, to make an underground journey that will help us understand the true sense of cooperation and brotherhood that exists in nature. An album book for all ages, where text and image complement each other, where the illustrations narrate the life of the forests and their inhabitants.
