From Here To There

Isabel Minhos Martins & Yara Kono

Over here, a baby. And over there, one step away,so many things!

Suddenly something begins to grow inside the baby: a will to go from here to there.

There, where the ball is.

There, where the bread is.

There, where the music is.

There, where the freedom lives
(of course).

Should we follow them?

Press voices

The act of walking is thus, poetically, revealed. (…) If the text by Isabel Minhós Martins boasts a rhythm and contention capable of recreating the engaging magic of this process, the illustrations by Yara Kono illuminate it.” Andreia Brites, Blimunda magazine

A compact and delightful picture book about the adventure and the wonder of first steps.” Pedro Miguel Silva, Deus me Livro

The first steps we take, the first objects we grasp and then lose… the small conquests we achieve in going from here to there. A small book which manages to bring us all the charm of a child’s first forays into autonomy. Beautiful!” Hipopómatos na Lua blog
