Show Notes


Este cuento se llama Noche de Gatos. Yo y Rufina leeremos el cuento para todos ustedes. Diviertanse!

Yo soy Edna Iturralde >

Mi color favorito es el amarillo porque es el color del sol, mi número el ocho porque parece un gato sentado en espera de que le dibujen las orejas y la cola. Me encanta el chocolate y la pizza casi tanto como adoro escribir libros para los niños y niñas.

Me fascina leer y siempre tengo un libro de cabecera. El día lunes me trae suerte, seguramente porque abrí los ojos por primera vez al comenzar una semana de mayo, bajo el brillante amanecer del cielo azude Quito, Ecuador.

He recibido muchos premios fuera y dentro de mi país, pero el más grande de todos es tener la oportunidad de conversar con mis lectores. He publicado cincuenta y ocho libros y a todos los quiero por igual porque son mis hijos de papel.
