This is the story of Pili, a little girl who travels the world with her photographer Dad. In this brilliantly illustrated book, Pili follows her dreams all the way from New York City to the Colombian rainforest. Her adventures tackle the concepts of global readiness and peace, cultural diversity and empowerment, entrepreneurship and environmental conservation.
“Pili imagines a peaceful place in the world for children. Her plan: it will be a forest reserve, and it will be in Colombia. This is not an easy goal for a little girl to accomplish. But Pili is determined; somehow, she will get this done! ” ~ Carl Safina
The Adventures of Pili in New York is a new dual language book by National Geographic Image Collection photographer, Kike Calvo, that responds to the current call to educate children who are comfortable facing global challenges. Global readiness is about understanding interdependencies and connections, feeling comfortable with difference and speaking languages other than our own.
As a new generation of bilingual books, The Adventures of Pili in New York in English/Spanish goes beyond a translation that familiarizes kids with a second language. This story is carefully narrated with attention to nuances and colloquialisms, striving for literary and cultural authenticity in each language. This promotes bi-literacy from an early age.
With exquisite watercolors, illustrated by Walter Carzon, parents and educators will find a powerful tool to support pre-readers and early readers (ages 3-7).
Mandarin, French, Hindi and Russian editions will follow. Part of the proceeds will help distribute this book in developing countries.
