Lejos / Far
author: Juan Felipe Herrera
illustrator: Blanca Gómez
El árbol de limones está lejos de mi casa. The lemon tree is far from my house.
The little boy’s house is far from the city, and the city is far from the ocean. What about the mountains in the distance, or the clouds in the sky, or the sun that shines over the boy as he walks?
Some things are close — cerca. Others are far — lejos. With sweet simplicity, this charming dual-language board book and its companion volume, Cerca/Close, engage young children.
