- The rhyming story unfolds like a cheerful walk to the rhythm of words.
- The choruses that are repeated, with small variations, after each verse entice you to read aloud and even to sing the text or to dramatize it, alone or in company. All this is a stimulus to empathy and collaboration.
- The message: our day is more beautiful if we know how to see (and we stop to look) what surrounds us. This knowing how to see, this attention increases not only the awareness of what is around us, but also that of our body, our emotions and our thoughts.
- From 3 years old
