What gifts do Mori and Tibo bring to the town of Cultivàn?
What Gifts Do Mori and Tibo Bring for Us? by Esmeralda Pérez Cortés is a book with lovely pictures for young readers. The book is written in an easy-to-read language with enough repetition to bring home the story's message and help young readers learn sentence structure and vocabulary. The story will find a place in the hearts of parents and children alike and will be a valuable tool to help a child overcome a scary situation and rise above the fear they might feel. The central theme is that when someone is scared, we can make a difference by showing gratitude, love, joy, and generosity to them. When we remember what we are grateful for, who and what we love, and what brings us joy, we can overcome fear and then generously share that with others who may experience sad and scary emotions. Even though this short story seems simple, it is a building block in growing your child's emotional intelligence and would make a worthwhile addition to your child's reading list.
