(Portuguese edition)

While we’re growing up, we learn something new every day. An emotion, a joke, a sound, a flavour. One day we dive, the next day we discover a new place. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. In this adventure of being and growing, every experience counts.

On this book, Madalena Matoso’s illustrations dialogue with words by Ana Pessoa (whose work we already knew from Young Adult fiction), bringing us closer to those moments when we focus on growing up and taking new steps. Whether they’re historical milestones (like those described on books) or more subtle achievements, those moments are equally important. What they all have in common is the determination, rhythm, energy and resilience that one needs to grow up. “I am. I can. I bring. I king. I ping. I pong.”

Come along, to discover this poem that never stops growing.

 

This book is part of the Mini-micro collection.

What they say

A book about learning to exist: being, seeing, talking, looking, living, socializing. (…) A book for toddlers? Maybe, but I’d also risk saying that it’s the first philosophy book for babies.

The illustrations by Madalena Matoso trace the originality and creativity — in the cover, endpapers, as well as in their lively and rhythmic dialogue with Ana Pessoa’s text.
