check out 5 works for children

On April 2, the ‘International Children’s Book Day’ is celebrated. With the aim of promoting reading among children, the date was also chosen to honor the Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, author of the famous literary work ‘The Little Mermaid’also adapted for the cinematic universe.

Just like Andersen’s books, some children’s literary works were also known for encouraging creativity and sharpening children’s senses, because, in addition to fun, books are also a mechanism for cognitive development and vocabulary improvement, which can help the little ones to overcome fears, understand feelings and tastes, build friendships and deal with their own emotions.

Next, check out 5 titles to encourage children to venture between the pages and fall in love with the literary universe!

What child never wanted to be big? Just to be able to eat sweets as much as you like without asking permission, go to school alone and watch cartoons without a time limit. Or maybe to become one Super hero, live in a cabin in the middle of a forest and travel to Mars.

With humorous texts and illustrations, One day reveals moments in a child’s life in which the desire for autonomy conflicts with the limitations imposed by adults. With an emotional ending, the work proposes a reflection on the challenges and responsibilities of growing up, both for the little ones and for fathers and mothers.

Cristóvão is scared to try the piano, Bubu is the man when it comes to mini golf (but not) and cherry picking could result in a big accident.
