LET’S STAY HOME AND READ BOOKS
Writing this blog today is difficult. I want to be positive, and with everything that’s going on these days, it’s hard for me. Every day when I wake up, I think that all this must have been a dream, that it is not real that we have to be locked up in the house without the possibility of going out. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
Besides, our sector has always been weak and it is going to need a lot of strength to be able to get up again. But we have to try. We cannot let ourselves be defeated. On a more positive note, I am sure that this situation is serving to recover readers, as many will have taken advantage of the confinement to rediscover the pleasure of reading. After all, a book accompanies you and allows you to travel to other worlds without having to move from home.
This blog always recommends the latest news but, due to changes in the programming of publishers, I prefer to recover titles that are already in bookstores and that can help people to have a better quarantine. I know that there are many parents who have young children at home, that’s why in today’s blog I want to recommend three readings that you can share with your children:
TALES TO LOVE YOURSELF MORE (Àlex Rovira and Francesc Miralles): In this book, Àlex Rovira and Francesc Miralles emphasize how important it is to cultivate values in children. With 35 stories that make up this book, they teach us how to cultivate this power from childhood, awakening the imagination, humor, love and acceptance of what each person is and how they are.
TALES FOR HAPPY KIDS (Àlex Rovira and Francesc Miralles): In this book we find 35 stories that teach us that values are the compass of life. Thanks to them, we can overcome adversity, make better decisions and be happier. Responsibility, trust, humility and cooperation are just some of the values that children and adults must learn to cultivate. In summary, strong values are the key to a better life.
LA VUELTA AL AÑO EN 365 CUENTOS (Àlex Rovira and Francesc Miralles): La Vuelta al año en 365 cuentos is a wonderful book for all parents to have the possibility to explain a story to their children. I am sure that many of you will enjoy reading this book as a family.
I always recommend visiting bookstores, but this time I advise you to get the books through digital platforms or the publishers’ own websites. I know it will be difficult, but together we will manage to get out of this situation. For the moment, it’s time to stay home and read. Thank you.
