«Un Mundo de Cuentos para Ver (Spanish Edition)»
Un día a la hora del baño, le surgió una duda sobre el agujero de su barriga. Y a este pequeño, como debería de sucedernos a todos, no le gusta dejar ninguna pregunta sin responder. Los niños atraviesan la etapa de los porqués cuando una inagotable curiosidad por todo lo que los rodea se alía con la imperiosa necesidad de descubrirlo por ellos mismos. De este modo, es como se produce el aprendizaje del día a día y el proceso natural —e imperceptible para uno mismo— de ir creciendo. Un cuento para desvelar con humor inteligente el porqué de la existencia.
Description in Engish: Little John was four years old, and like all little boys of that age, he was very curious. What he liked more than anything else in the world was to explore, and almost every day he made a new discovery. This imaginary story by Ramón Aragüés is precisely about one of these everyday discoveries that come about at bath-time. Daddy washed the ears, knees, elbows, and feet.
To hurry things along Little John rubbed in the soap. Suddenly, the tip of his finger disappeared. What had happened? His finger had gone inside his belly button! This is how our protagonist discovers he had a hole in his belly, but the finding intrigued him so much that from then on, he was always asking: but, why do I have a belly button? And this is how Little John begins experimenting one of the more amusing childhood stages: that of endless questions.
During this period, young children want to know the why of everything that surrounds them, and as in this case, they go to those who are closest: to dad, their older sister, grandfather and mother… Each one of the members of this particular family, taking advantage of the little one’s innocence, invents a little white lie about the origin of the belly button, until in the end mother reveals the true reason for its existence, and in passing, one of the greatest mysteries of life.
