Martino has wheels is the story of a girl who loves telling stories and a very silent child who listens to her and smiles. Emma and Martino meet each other on the delicate terrain of relations, their friendship grows with curious and empathetic intelligence causing traditional ideas of learning, language and knowledge to stumble. The book has been written by a mother experiencing the growing up of her son whose special rights, still today, pose important questions. With lightness, without words, Martino’s wheels, turning on these pages, tell us of a universal declaration: difference makes us human.
The first book for children published by Reggio Children with corsiero editore.
