"El galardonado artista John Parra nos trae un conmovedor y engañosamente simple cuento infantil ilustrado inspirado por su propia niñez, sobre el lazo entre padre e hijo, el valor de trabajar duro y los vínculos que existen entre la naturaleza, el arte y la creatividad."--Based on author-illustrator John Parra's own experience helping with his father's landscape architecture business and how it inspired him to become an artist, this deceptively simple story celebrates hard work, the bond between a father and son, and the profound links between nature and art, creativity and autonomy. Today is a big day: it's the first time Juanito gets to help his papi on the job as a landscape architect. Juanito never goes anywhere without his sketchbook, and he carries it with him throughout the day, sketching anything that catches his eye"--Provided by the publisher.
