Q&A with Marta Orzel about MY DAY IN THE PARK
What do you hope children will learn from this book?
“For me parks are places of mental rest and discovery, they are enclaves of calm in the constant noise of the city. I love spending time there, walking and observing trees and flowers. I hope that the children reading this book will be able to enrich their vocabulary while having fun, but above all that they will learn to be attentive to what surrounds them and to savor the joyful moments of life.”
