El silbido de Juan

Overview


John is different. When other children began learning how to speak, John didn’t. As he grew older, whenever he had to ask for something or wanted to express his feelings, he would simply whistle.

Overview


John is different. When other children began learning how to speak, John didn’t. As he grew older, whenever he had to ask for something or wanted to express his feelings, he would simply whistle. John began using different kinds of whistles for different kinds of reasons: he blew a gentle whistle to call attention, a louder whistle when he was hungry, and an even louder one if something scared him. But everything changed the day he met Clara, a little girl with dark, dark eyes. This is a tender story that reminds readers that music is the true language of the soul, and that people’s differences can be resolved through good intentions and friendship.

Juan es diferente. Cuando los otros niños comenzaron a aprender a hablar, Juan no lo hizo. Mientras fue creciendo, cada vez que tenía que pedir algo o expresar sus sentimientos, simplemente silbaba. Juan comenzó a usar diferentes tipos de silbidos para diferentes razones: soplaba un silbido suave para llamar la atención, un silbido más alto cuando tenía hambre y uno más alto todavía si algo lo asustaba. Pero todo cambió el día que conoció a Clara, una niña con ojos muy, muy oscuros. Ésta es una historia tierna que le recuerda al lector que la música es el lenguaje verdadero del alma, y que las diferencias entre las personas pueden ser superadas mediante buenas intenciones y amistad.
