Rosas de la Infancia: Lecturas para los Niños: Libro Segundo
This is a canvas-bound book of some 140 pages and a T of C. The front board cover pesents various colored floral patterns. An anomaly of the book is that 65-80 are missing in this copy. In their place 129-140 and the T of C are presented for a second time! There are some identified fables and a couple of others. So we find El Lobo, el Lobo! (20); TH (40, with colored illustration); La Gallina que ponia huevos de oro, identified as from Aesop (51); La Rana, also from Aesop (53); La Hormiga y la Cigarra (54); El Burro y la Cigarra (63: the donkey changes his diet to that of the cicada and dies); and El Perro y el Gato (130). The book forms a good testimony to the power of fables in a culture different from our own.
