Barcelona cuéntanos de Gaudí
Another of the fabulous treasures I found in my annual Texas bookshop hop is this new book about the famous Spanish-Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudí. The story line follows four children who are out and about in the city one day and become curious about the architect of the church of the Sagrada Familia. They want to learn more about him and explore his work in Barcelona, Spain, but they need a guide. So they close their eyes and imagine what Gaudí must have looked like. When they open their eyes, there he is in front of them, and he offers to take them on a tour of the city and show them all of the buildings he designed.
This book is a must-have for bilingual or Spanish homeschoolers. It would easily supplement any Art History studies. It is best suited as a read-aloud for children 6 and older, but even kids in middle and high-school might benefit from the information contained in this book.
I only have one copy for sale, and you can find it here.
