Piedi e orecchio – Il pettirosso  | Feet and Ears – The robin

Feet and Ears. Journeys in sound for young nature explorers.

Step by step, traveling with ears wide open, to discover sounds and music with your child.

Feet and Ears is the new line of illustrated children’s books for discovering nature through the eyes and ears.

Each volume features an original story dedicated to the small creatures that a child might encounter in his/her outdoor explorations in the park or playground, and to the sounds of nature and the cycle of seasons.


A book about autumn, with the need to find food, make a nest, give birth. Getting closer to the animal world and its many curiosities helps children open themselves to participatory observation and listening.
