- What prompted you to the writing of a children’s book?
The book “The most beautiful fairy tales. – New and unpublished stories was created, to take our children and young people to a world of dream and enchantment full of fantasy and imagination. As we go through its pages, we remember those fantastic stories in fairytale kingdoms, told us by our loved ones such as our Mom and Grandma. in the stories appear several new characters, such as: kings, queens, princes, princesses, fairies, witches, giants, mermaids, dinosaurs, extraterrestrials, genies, among others a dream that goes beyond the pages, because there is nothing better than seeing a child smile. these sweet and lovable little creatures. to discover a new world, travel to the magnificent fairy kingdom where happiness and harmony live, where all dreams come true. love, nature and neighbor become unique if they interact in eternity as we embark through its pages we experience great emotions, in a world of fantasies we become active and participatory characters in adventures.- How important do you think illustrations are in a children’s book? The images seek to interact in some way with the stories, trying to capture the emotions and transformations of the characters. It is the transition of facts and events within the narration that favors imagination, creativity, curiosity and dialogue about diversity and differences, the relationships between the real world and the imaginary, in addition to being a form of meaningful and individualized learning. The texts always begin by describing beautiful landscapes and the diversity of nature, with surprising endings. With each story there are new situations and interesting facts. The stories, in addition to being beautiful and with beautiful engravings, provide the reader with contact with different textual genres. The images create in the reader different interpretations of the characters and the journey of each story, stimulating the reader’s art and desire to create. which can develop the creation of new landscapes, new designs, new engravings a cultural awakening, a critical sense when analyzing the engraving the reader will be able to identify it as being or not being coherent with the story and the facts, hence the important learning of knowing how to make your own judgment of the illustrations of each story.

For example, in one of her stories the author addresses the importance of preserving and caring for water. we must take care of one of our greatest assets because without water there will be no life on our planet as it will become extinct. In this perception, we hope that our stories contribute to these valuable concepts being added to the importance of human coexistence.
