«Un Mundo de Cuentos para Ver (Spanish Edition)»
En una cabaña del bosque vivían tres osos. Un día los osos salieron a dar un paseo antes de desayunar; entonces Ricitos de Oro se encontró la casa vacía y entró… A partir del cuento tradicional, el narrador añade una serie de comentarios sobre hábitos, virtudes y buenas costumbres que inciden en valores como la responsabilidad, la autonomía y el buen uso de la libertad.
Description in English: In a cabin in the woods there lived three bears. One day, the bears went out for a walk before breakfast; and Goldilocks found the house empty… Considered an anonymous folk tale, it was made popular in 1837 by the British poet Robert Southey, perhaps based on an older version.
In Southey’s version, as in that of Eleanor Mure, published six years earlier, the intruder was a mean old woman; in 1849, Joseph Cundall published his “Treasury of Pleasure Books for Young Children” explaining the reasons for changing the old woman for a girl. Focusing on the traditional story, and without drifting away from the idea that privacy should be respected, this version by Marisa Núñez establishes a link between the narrator and the reader which helps the child to identify with the bears, strengthening the formative efficiency of the story; with the excuse of explaining the characters actions, the narrator implicitly teaches a series of good habits and manners that encourage responsibility, autonomy and the smart use of freedom.
In addition to providing a positive influence behaviorally and stimulating artistic and literary sensibility, the story serves as an effective instrument to transmit mathematical concepts, and to understand notions of size (big, medium, small) or to establish functional relations between the animals and the environment to which they relate. The images by Minako Chiba also contribute to the development of visual abilities that help the early reader to acquire the necessary vocabulary for the mathematical understanding of numbers and concepts.
