Acerca del libro
Hand-in-hand with Pili, the reader discovers the adventures of a little girl who travels the world with her dad, National Geographic Image Collection photographer Kike Calvo. In this brilliantly illustrated book, Pili, the Little Explorer, follows her dreams all the way from New York City to the Colombian rainforest. The core message of The Adventures of Pili series is environmental conservation and sustainability. This book tackles the concepts of cultural diversity and empowerment, global readiness and peace, entrepreneurship, and climate change.
Msichana mdogo anasafiri duniani. Baba yake ni mpiga picha. Kwa hiyo, ingawa ni mdogo—maisha yake ni makubwa, yakijumuisha kila kitu kutoka Jiji la New York hadi msitu wa mvua wa Kolombia.
Kwa kuona na kusikiliza, kwa kufikiria na kwa kuhisi—labda kwa sababu amerithi kidogo uwezo wa pekee wa baba yake wa kuona mambo—Pili anajali vitu vya asili, watu wanaozungumza lugha nyingine, na amani.
Pili anafikiria mahali pa amani ulimwenguni kwa ajili ya watoto. Mpango wake: itakuwa hifadhi ya msitu, na itakuwa Kolombia. Hili sio jambo rahisi kwa msichana mdogo kukamilisha. Lakini Pili amedhamiria; kwa njia fulani, atafanya hili liwezekane!
Hata hivyo, ni kwamba, kitabu hiki hakiko mbali sana na uhalisia. Pili ni msichana halisi, na baba yake ndiye mwandishi wa kitabu hiki. Na msitu unaendelea.
