I am me. A journey of growth and feelings to tell the identity of each child that begins to build and will not stop evolving in the small gestures.
In the first relationships of affection, the child recognizes himself, knows and is formed: he gives a name to those who accompany him, to what surrounds him, he makes room for his identity that begins to build and will not stop evolving: it is the delicate moment in which the child says ‘I’ and at the same time asks for the other, for ‘us’. Io sono io by Beatrice Masella and Jacobo Muñiz is a journey of growth and feelings, to remind adults how children are deeply sensitive and how the existence of a better future will depend on their education. A story to tell that you can do many things with them, but the most important is to be together, because it is from this meaningful relationship that the individual becomes a human being. Leafing through the pages we can play at discovering that little piece of the other that remains within us after each encounter, many colored pieces, kept in the heart, that enrich and make us grow.
Jacobo Muñiz is specialized in illustrating children’s books and has been published by several publishing houses in Spain, Taiwan, Korea, Brazil, Chile, USA and Mexico. Maria Beatrice Masella was born in Taranto, but has lived in Bologna since 1975, where she works as a teacher and pedagogist.
