Educate To Life - Montessori Notes

Sogno [Dream]

What does it mean being a parent?
Matthew Cordell finds the words that most of us would never find, giving us such a powerful book in its simplicity.
A couple of gorillas (we ❤️ gorillas:) welcome their baby and dream: they imagine their future together, their baby’s future, going through a rainbow of emotions.

Pride, curiosity, excitement, joy, worry and much more. That’s all we feel when we think about our children’s life. 
There is some bitterness too, for something that we can only dare to dream.

‘For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, 
which you cannot visit, 
not even in your dreams’ [Kahlil Gibran]

Matthew Cordell’s bold and powerful illustrations, together with the choice of the characters, convey the feeling of an ancestral, universal truth, and help young readers to catch the sense of time, of their lifetime, of love.
