La Selva de Zonia

Let's work for change!

Little Zonia is a happy girl who lives with her family in the rainforests. She adores her home and has formed many friendships with the forest creatures she visits every morning. The forest never fails to enchant her with its liveliness and the happiness it brings her. However, one day, while walking to see her friends, she comes across something that breaks her heart.

We picked this book for its title. Zonia, a little girl, is a member of the Ashaninka tribe, an indigenous group living in the Peruvian rainforests. The Amazon forest, which is Zonia's home, is a vital source of oxygen for our planet. The author emphasizes the importance of protecting these forests and urges us to take responsibility. Readers are taken on an adventure through a section of the Amazon as they follow Zonia's journey, thanks to the book's stunning illustrations.

Juana Martinez-Neal's touching story, La selva de Zonia, is accompanied by heartwarming illustrations that inspire you to contemplate the forests that envelop us. The book serves as a thought-provoking reminder of how vital our natural surroundings are, urging us to reflect on their significance.
