It’s the the season of love, and books are a perfect way to talk with children about it.
Valentine’s Day can be a great opportunity for parents to teach the value of this word.
These children’s books introduces the theme of love in many different ways and for kids with different ages: silent books, lovely characters, the power of love against prejudice, the meaning of falling in love, and the value of freedom.
A real catalog of poetic and humorous, unlikely and authentic kisses. A long silent book that needs no words, but to which each one can give his voice. A sample of natural and unpublished eﬀusions, because we will have to start kissing again, without foreclosures or prejudices.
A folding book that is not folding but, as its author says, “A fierce sentimental device”.

The book gives us a vision of two houses that we can keep observing with a zoom in. The view shows two neighbors, two strangers, separated by a wall. Two different worlds where a SHE draws, in an ethnic atmosphere in dark and earthy colours. While a HE dyes fabrics in a garden where bright colours and plants stand out. It’s enough to remember that we just need very little, maybe just a ﬂower ﬂying away, to open our eyes and change once for all our lives!
A beautiful book about diﬀerence, love and tolerance and against any kind of racism and prejudice! A powerful message with stunning images, full of colours and poetry…

When your heart races…
Your heart thumps like a drum, your face turns as red as a beetroot, you can’t get your words out in one piece… These are all emotions and they almost always tell the truth about what we are feeling. Nothing to fear, they just want to be listened to!
