¡Celebrando el Día Internacional del Libro Infantil y Juvenil!

El 2 de abril conmemoramos el Día Internacional del Libro Infantil y Juvenil, una fecha dedicada a fomentar la lectura entre los más jóvenes y a celebrar la magia de los libros. Pero, ¿por qué son tan importantes los libros durante el aprendizaje de los niños?

La lectura en la infancia es fundamental, ya que estimula la imaginación, fortalece el desarrollo del lenguaje, promueve el pensamiento crítico y transmite valores importantes. A través de los libros, los niños exploran mundos imaginarios, adquieren vocabulario, reflexionan sobre diversas situaciones y aprenden lecciones valiosas sobre la vida y la sociedad.

En honor al Día Internacional del Libro Infantil y Juvenil, hemos seleccionado tres cuentos especiales en inglés para que disfruten los niños y sus familias. ¡Sumérgete en estas cautivadoras historias y celebra la magia de la lectura junto a StarsKids!

The Ugly Duckling

Audio de texto a voz para una lectura asistida

Once upon a time, there was an ugly duckling who lived with his mother and his brothers and sisters. The duckling was different from all the other ducks. He was big and awkward, and his feathers were a strange color.

The other ducks made fun of the ugly duckling. They called him names and said that he didn’t belong. The ugly duckling was very sad. He didn’t know why he was so different.

One day, the ugly duckling flew away from the farm. He flew and flew until he came to a lake. He saw a flock of beautiful swans swimming in the lake. The ugly duckling was afraid to go near them, but he couldn’t help but watch them.

As he watched the swans, he noticed that he looked a lot like them. He had the same long neck and the same graceful movements. The ugly duckling realized that he wasn’t ugly at all. He was just a swan.

The ugly duckling joined the flock of swans, and they welcomed him with open wings. The ugly duckling was finally home.

The Tortoise and the Hare

Once upon a time there was a hare who spent all day bragging about how fast he could run. Tired of hearing him boast, the tortoise, challenged him to a race.

“You must be kidding!” said the hare laughing. “I am so much faster than you.”

“We shall see,” the tortoise replied.

The next day, the animals of the forest gathered to watch the race. Everyone wanted to see if the tortoise could beat the hare.

The bear started the race yelling “On you mark, get set, go!”

The hare immediately raced ahead, running faster than ever. He looked back and saw the tortoise was only a few steps away from the starting line.

“Foolish tortoise, ” thought the hare. “He is so slow. Why would he want to race me if he has no chance to win?”

Confident that he was going to win the race, the hare decided to stop in the middle of the road to rest under a tree. The cool and pleasant shade of the tree was very relaxing, so much so that the hare fell asleep.

Meanwhile, the tortoise continued walking slowly, but steady. He was determined not to give up. Soon, he found the hare sleeping peacefully.

The tortoise was winning the race!

When the tortoise approached the finish line, all the animals in the forest began cheering with excitement. The noise woke the hare, who could not believe his eyes: the tortoise was crossing the finish line and he had lost the race.

Moral: You can be more successful by doing things slowly and steadily than by acting quickly and carelessly.

The Three Little Pigs

Once upon a time, there were three little pigs who lived with their mother. One day, their mother told them that they were old enough to go out into the world and build their own houses.

The first little pig built a house of straw. The second little pig built a house of sticks. But the third little pig built a house of bricks.

A big bad wolf came to the first little pig’s house and huffed and puffed and blew the house down. The first little pig ran to the second little pig’s house, but the big bad wolf huffed and puffed and blew that house down too.

The two little pigs ran to the third little pig’s house, but the big bad wolf could not blow it down. The wolf tried to climb up the chimney, but the third little pig boiled a big pot of water and the wolf fell in and died.

The three little pigs lived happily ever after in the house of bricks.
