Vegetables, animals, fruits and flowers come alive to make the routine something exceptional.

7. I am an artist by Marta Altés. The young artist’s favorite book. The main character loves colors, shapes and textures, turning any everyday object into an inspirational element. His only handicap? His mom doesn’t think it’s such a good idea…
8. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. An essential classic for all. Friendship, heroism and fable take shape on this small planet that is only accessible through the imagination.
9. Salvaje by Emily Hughes. Animals become the young protagonist’s family in this story, teaching her to eat, play and speak. The expressive illustrations make this bold story addictive from beginning to end. And it encourages adults to reflect on their way of life.
10. Press Here btHervé Tullet. Its magic makes it repeat reading for young and old. Colorful changing circles at the edge of the page or about to fly that appear and disappear: everything depends on whether the reader presses them, rubs them, blows them or shakes them.
