Yes, In Turkey - UÇAN AT


A small story that tells an important moment, of complicity and growth, between a mother and her child. The mother teaches her child the importance of listening: opening the heart to what surrounds it. The child will be able to see reality with different eyes; while being embraced by silence, he will learn to know his thoughts and dreams.

Some information about the Illustrator: Chiara Buccheri was born in Palermo, she has always drawn and perhaps making cheerful designs full of bright colors is the strongest link she maintains with her roots. Now that she is a mother, drawing accompanies her in this new adventure, creating opportunities for play, leisure, distraction and even of rest. ’I would no longer be myself if I were forced to quit one day’, she says.
