The Poetics of Childhood (La poética de la infancia)

Ensayo | Luna libros, 2016 | 132 pages

“This book is about  the passion for words and about what is stated in different ways along its pages: the carnality of words, the power they exert over us, to the extent that we can only try to define ourselves with words.
[…] Yolanda Reyes also highlights how important it is for parents to read aloud to their children. Beyond the fascination with words, beyond connecting a fledgling human being with his or her imagination, there is something more profound, more intimate and, for that reason, more necessary: “What seals a child´s relation to reading is an unwritten undercurrent that ties adults and children through words. It is the revelation that any book, with or without pages, is some magical spell that achieves the most important thing in childhood: the reassurance that, while the story lasts, mom and dad won’t go away’”.  Darío Jaramillo Agudelo
