Book - Amigos (Spanish edition)
Board Book in Spanish, By Eric Carle
When a best friend moves away, it can be painful for the child who is left behind. But the spunky boy in this upbeat story makes up his mind to find his missing playmate. Friends tells a story alive with love, perseverance, and hope, all brightened with the vibrant, unmistakable art of Eric Carle.
Two inseparable friends have to say goodbye. The girl goes away, leaving her friend desolate. He misses her so much that he goes looking for her crossing rivers, mountains, rains and darkness until he finds her. She was waiting for him to be inseparable again. Eric Carle, the famous author and illustrator of The Little Gluttonous Caterpillar or interactive books such as the recent Brown Bear, brown bear, what do you see? This time moves us with a book whose history is apparently simple. However, this story tells us something intense and profound: the bond of friendship. Of the true friendship, the one that defies distances, fights against obstacles and endures silences. Carle himself, at the end of the book, asks himself with nostalgia what would have become of the friend of his earliest childhood whom he stopped seeing when he was six years old.
