Con el Sol en los Ojos/With The Sun In My Eyes Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this charming book of short poems in Spanish and English, a young boy and girl describe their world and their day-to-day experiences — the boys street is like the trunk of an almond tree and the newborn chicks are like tiny walking suns. The girl loves her dog Oliver, the wind hitting her in the face and laughter "that explodes for no reason." But the children also ponder mysteries such as the loud silence the boy hears inside himself when he goes for a walk alone and the vast beauty of the sky with its clouds and constellations.

Once again Jorge Lujan brings young readers a lyrical and joyful collection of poems. Morteza Zahedi's powerful illustrations in densely saturated colors perfectly complement the poems' subtle explorations.
