“Conto em casa” is a children’s collection that gently addresses new and often distressing feelings experienced by little ones isolated at home: does the superhero now also need a thing that covers smiles? And does the dog need a mask? Can we hold hands? And kiss? Doll needs hand sanitizer? Can we blow grazed knee and birthday candle? Oh, I miss my grandfather! Love, protection, courage, freedom, space, simplicity and humor. Time, melancholy, fear, loneliness, emptiness, sadness and death. Illustrated by Chica Batella, these are the themes addressed by this book which brings up the children’s universe enclosed in confined spaces, inside and outside the soul.
Readers 4-10 years old.
