Mia eats banana is the new tale of the Mia collection, written by Margarita Barriga Pino and will be presented tomorrow. “I know that children need stories, that they help them to understand life a little more, to think about them and to learn. Thanks to the children I have felt gratified, “says the writer from Guayaquil.
In the story, Mia talks with Pío about which fruit wins the most among all the fruits,and this is how, while talking about the apple and the banana, they know much more about the origin and use of this fruit, there is even a recipe so that the children can prepare it.
“It seems to me that children should taste and enjoy the natural foods that our mother earth gives us,” the author adds.
The story is the ninth story published about Mia and which is dedicated to Margotti Baquerizo, eldest daughter of the writer. “She has taught me that life has ups and downs, but that it is beautiful and that you have to know how to take it to be happy even though sometimes we have hard processes in life”.Barriga Pino stands out.
The launch is scheduled for 18:00, at Librería Vida Nueva in Plaza Quil. Margarita Barriga invites all children and adults who like to read or follow the Miaseries, where she will read stories, and even make a banana recipe that is explained in the story.
A flower, a belly and a pine are creatively drawn on top of each author’s book so that children who read their stories always remember their name. “The other day in a clinic, there was a little boy and the mother says: Do you know who she is? She, she says, is Margarita Barriga Pino. He ran to hug me and told me I love your stories. I have had this type of manifestations also of children that really fills me with joy, “she says.
Many of her stories are part of the reading plan of several academic institutions.They have transcended both nationally and internationally, becoming translated into English. “They have gone to Germany, to Australia and they like mystories,” says the writer.
At the end of the interview Barriga adds: “As a writer says, in books there is part of one’s life, so in history there are many things in my personal life that are reflected in the stories. The children appreciate my stories, I write them for them. ” (I)
