A grandmother and her granddaughter help an injured bird in this moving story in Spanish about love, the fascination with nature, and letting go.
One winter day a grandmother and her granddaughter find an injured bird. They pick him up and take him home to heal him, until he is able to fly around the room. It is wonderful . . . Everything is wonderful at grandma's house! But a wonderful moment can also be bittersweet: the bird has recovered and it's time to let it fly free.
Inspired by a childhood experience of hers, the story Blanca Gómez creates is deceptively simple, but morally and emotionally intense. A story full of love and fascination, and a deep respect for nature.
