Tiempo Lento y Perezoso
Tiempo Lento y Perezoso (Slow and Lazy Time) by art student Alfonso Cervantes is a Spanish book that can be enjoyed by little ones due their artwork and interaction, and by older ones because of its knowledge, or the lack of it. It is a summary of emotions, an introspective view at the kid that lies inside all of us, and above all what I wanted to say to that kid from the grown-up point of view that I have now.
This trip is taken by a group of kids, that go through a series of tests and teachings, every page is accompanied by a quote and interactions which invite the reader to become part of the teaching of those kids, as if we were teaching ourselves something that we actually ignore.
In the same way as the classic fairy tales, this book hides deep knowledge, nuanced within a series of quotes and characters. The main objective is not to understand everything about this book. Rather, this book is something that is meant to be enjoyed, make you smile, and maybe learn something.
