Un libro infantil sobre el amor que le tiene un niño a su madre y a la barriga de su madre y que a la vez es una celebración del cuerpo.
Todo el mundo tiene una panza: puede ser grande y redonda, blanda y pequeña o algo intermedio. Pero la panza favorita de un pequeño niño es la de su mamá. Su panza es capaz de cosas extraordinarias y ella la ama como una parte importante de sí misma. La panza de su mamá también fue su primer hogar. Antes de que naciera, lo acurrucó y lo sostuvo.
Cuando él se siente tímido y necesita un lugar para refugiarse o cuando quiere un lugar para descansar durante mientras escucha un cuento antes de dormir, la panza de mamá siempre está ahí. Con texto empoderador de Isabel Quintero y arte vivaz de Iliana Galvez, La panza de mamá es una carta de amor de un niño a su madre, además de una celebración de nuestros cuerpos y nuestras panzas.

A body-positive picture book about a young boy's love for his mother and his mother's belly.

Everyone has a panza—it can be big and round, soft and small, or somewhere in between. But a young boy’s favorite panza of all is Mamá’s. Her panza is capable of remarkable things, and she loves it as an important part of herself. Her panza was also his first home. Even before he was born, it cradled and held him.

When he’s feeling shy and needs a place to hide or when he wants somewhere to rest during a bedtime story, Mamá’s panza is always there. With affirming text by Isabel Quintero and vivid art by Iliana Galvez, Mamá’s Panza is a young boy’s love letter to his mother, along with a celebration of our bodies and our bellies.
