Description

Amor es la melodía que nos acompaña todos y cada uno de los días de nuestra vida. Ya sea el suave arrullo de nuestros padres a la hora de dormir, la risa divertida que provoca un cuento inventado por nuestro tío o el abrazo cálido de un ser querido que nos tranquiliza, es un sentimiento que toma diferentes formas y un lazo que nos une a todos.

En el comienzo hay luz,
y dos siluetas de grandes ojos
al pie de tu cuna,
y el sonido de sus voces es amor.

En esta emotiva celebración del amor, Matt de la Peña, autor ganador de la Medalla Newbery, y Loren Long, renombrado ilustrador y de gran éxito en ventas, describen las diferentes maneras en que experimentamos este vínculo universal. Con emotivas ilustraciones y un susurrante texto lírico, esta tierna historia nos brinda tranquilidad y también un nuevo clásico que calará hondo en los lectores de todas las edades.
