¡En el corazón de la selva tropicale! -“La magia de la Amazonia Las aventuras de Meromi, una niña Yanomami”

Barbara Crane Navarro

ilustración de “La magia de la Amazonia” – Las aventuras de Meromi, una niña Yanomami

Un regalo de Navidad este año, leemos partes de este cuento en voz alta durante varias noches. Nuestro hijo de 8 años estaba ansioso por escuchar lo que vendría. Este tema era nuevo para él y le fascinaba conocer los rituales de los chamanes, tradiciones con plantas y detalles de la vida Yanomami en la Amazonía. Adoraba las plantas y los animales que hablaban y se regocijaba con los nombres de todos los personajes (le encantaba rodar los nombres en su boca mucho después de que se contara la historia).

La historia está respaldada por hermosas e intrigantes ilustraciones y el diseño gráfico muy original del libro. ¡Es un cuento que debe estar en manos de más de nosotros, jóvenes y mayores!

Au coeur de la forêt tropicale ! – “La Magie de l’Amazonie Les aventures de Meromi, une fille Yanomami”

Barbara Crane Navarro

illustration tirée de “La Magie de l’Amazonie Les aventures de Meromi, une fille Yanomami”

Un cadeau de Noël cette année, nous avons lu des parties de ce conte à haute voix pendant plusieurs soirées. Notre fils de 8 ans était impatient d’entendre ce qui allait suivre. Ce sujet était nouveau pour lui et il était fasciné par l’apprentissage des rituels des chamans, des traditions avec des plantes et des détails de la vie des Yanomami en Amazonie. Il adorait les plantes et les animaux qui parlaient et se réjouissait des noms de tous les personnages (il adorait rouler les noms dans sa bouche longtemps après que l’histoire ait été racontée).

L’histoire est soutenue par de belles illustrations intrigantes et la conception graphique très originale du livre. C’est un conte qui doit être entre les mains d’un plus grand nombre d’entre nous, jeunes et moins jeunes!

In the heart of the tropical forest! – “Amazon Rainforest Magic The adventures of Meromi, a Yanomami girl”

Barbara Crane Navarro

illustration from “Amazon Rainforest Magic – The adventures of Meromi, a Yanomami girl”

A Christmas present this year, we spread the telling of this story over several evenings, reading it out loud. Our 8-year-old son couldn’t wait to hear what would come next. This subject matter was new for him, and he was fascinated by learning about shamans, traditions with plants and details of Yanomami life in the Amazon. He loved the talking plants and animals and the names of all the characters (he adored rolling the names around in his mouth long after the story was told)

The story is supported by beautiful, intriguing illustrations and the book’s highly original graphic design.

This is a storybook that needs to be in the hands of more of us, young and old alike!
