In recent weeks, most parents are struggling with child care due to school closures, without even knowing how long can last. Flexibility and empathy will help us all through this. But the outbreak also give us the opportunity to spend more time reading and telling stories.
Family life can feel difficult sometimes. That’s why Bambú started publishing the Victory series eight years ago. A collection of short stories on personal growing for children to discover the magic of books.
Simple and easy to understand, the texts by Elisenda Roca come with amazing and funny illustrations by Cristina Losantos to stimulate the imagination of the six year old readers.
Each title has both educational and literary values. The series explores universal topics such as good manners, consumerism, being unselfish and independent, keep neat and tidy, greet and communicate with others instead of getting glued to electronic devices… All those habits and behaviors we do also need as adults to deal with isolation.
Victory series has been sold to 13 languages and the 10th title will be out in September this year. As proof that in spite of the social distance, good stories cross cultural boundaries and help us to stay in touch. Until everything gets back to normal and children go back to school… Until then, stay safe and stay in touch.
