“Existe una cosa que se llama Tristeza. Y tiene un ojo que todo lo ve”, por más que quiera mirar a su alrededor, Tristeza no puede ver algo distinto a lo que siempre ha visto con su único ojo de tristeza. Pero, Tristeza encontrará un mundo tan bello y mágico en su camino, como la figura de una sonrisa radiante que forma su párpado al cerrar su ojo.

“There is a thing called Sadness. And he has an eye that sees everything ”, no matter how much he wants to look around, Sadness cannot see anything different from what he has always seen with his only sad eye. But, Sadness will find such a beautiful and magical world on his way, like the figure of a radiant smile that forms his eyelid when he closes his eye.

Teacher Comment(s):

"This is a book that invites you to mediate about a feeling (sadness) and how to cope with this feeling using the imagination. I love the illustrations and colors. The illustrations are so inviting, starting from the cover book, the colors the line that gives some sense of happiness. This book is a great tool to introduce feelings, colors, math and develop vocabulary and language skills. Great story to start a conversation of inclusion and diversity."
