This book starts out when an eaglet and worm meet for the first time. They size each other up and make all sorts of comparisons, each one intending to make himself look bigger or better than the other new friend. The conversation continues in this manner until the worm mentions the passing of his uncle that was the only one who knew how to read and always told the best stories.
Leer es mejor que volar altísimo, mejor que cavar los túneles más hondos, mejor que tener vision telescópica. Es como abrazar, bailar, cantar y ver el Sol al mismo tiempo.
They have heard that the owl that lives on the other side of the forest could teach them to read and when the eaglet grows big enough to fly, he carries the worm to find the owl. They find him submerged in books but he was more than happy to teach them to read.
Cuentan que la lombriz, el águila y el búho se hicieron amigos inseparables. Cuentan que hicieron cientos de viajes y que leyeron muchísimos libros.
I think there is no better way to start the school year than by lots and lots of reminders of the joys and riches of reading. This would be a great companion or follow up to reading this book! Stay tuned for more books in our De regreso a la escuela series! I would love to know other suggestions you may have!
