Moví la mano = I moved my hand

October 9, 2014
Luján, Jorge, author.
Toronto : Groundwood Books : House of Anansi Press, [2014].
1 volume (unpaged) : color illustrations ; 25 cm
When a little girl moves her hand, she changes the world as she discovers it. As she moves her known world, she discovers her own power and creates everything anew. The poem, written by Argentine poet Jorge Luján, comes from a culture saturated with magic, in which even the very young can make the world by reaching out and moving it. Mandana Sadat's imaginative illustrations deepen and enrich the text. Moví la mano / I Moved My Hand is a very special contribution to the world of children's books for the very young (and the not so young).
