My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cuatrogatos Foundation Inc, MIami, FL, USA
It is difficult to imagine the world of children's literature in Spanish without the contribution to it from Foundation Cuatrogatos. Precisely because one of its main goals has been to connect different publics and participants in Latin America. Their commitment is sustained and carried out with an unusual conviction and generosity. That is why, for me and for so many other people, they are a cornerstone in the creation, circulation and critical thinking of literature for children and YA in Spanish. Their activities comprises a huge variety, from training teachers in Miami, interviewing a Brazilian illustrator or publishing a book on Latin American literature in the United States, to being part of an academic committee of an Ibero-American Congress or judges of an international contest in Mexico.
As a researcher, writer, journalist and reading promoter, Cuatrogatos (Sergio Andricaín and Antonio Orlando Rodríguez), have inspired me to write better stories, do poetry studies for children, write book reviews and, above all, to keeping my own independent blog. Independence, in a project like Cuatrogatos, is of the essence to preserving the trust of the different audiences they reach.
I am hopeful that Cuatrogatos Foundation will continue growing, building bridges through children’s literature and striving towards a peaceful and tolerant world.
