My job was to help design and illustrate a children's book for the schools to circulate among the students about their role in protecting the environment that surrounds them. The story they wrote (in Spanish) "Diego y la Reserva de la Biosfera," was about a boy named Diego, who, with his classmates and community, cleans up the litter around the river that runs through their town. I really love this story the kids wrote because it serves as a reminder that change starts with us. I feel fortunate that I was chosen to be a part of this project-- and proud that a little piece of me is floating around somewhere deep in the Sierra Gorda!
And without further ado, here is the finished product:
Obviously, it's in Spanish. You guys get the gist though, right? Happy Tuesday!
