Have you ever realised how much a pebble has witnessed?
When a child discovers this tiny inerte substance in the middle of the city, suddenly the quotidian becomes magic.
Pedres is an ilustrated album without any text. A book created for the children to enjoy the pictures with no need to get involved in a text context , allowing them to flow with their own words.
The book shows 21 pictures where the reader will expand his/her curiosity which at the same time will become learning through experimenting with an every day environment.
How was the flowers project born?
My name is Míriam and as a mother and teacher I have been looking for tales where the child could think about his/her own voice and look, but I have not found many examples.
As a mother and teacher I have been looking for stuff to work with learning difficulties related to readership and it has been difficult to find. That is the reason why I decided to create several ilustrated pictures observing children's experiences and then this project was born.
Pedres was born to offer children the chance to learn step by step in a free way. Free to imagine stories wich are not written. Free to enjoy an ilustrated picture and take part of it. Without being in a hurry, just enjoying.
Pedres allows children to create their own stories, their text.
Learning at our own pace
We live in a society where we want everything right now and fast. Our children grow up in a world where learning fast is essential. This creates a stressful way of learning wich disturbs their self-esteem and abilities.
Pedres is thought to encourage the pleasure of learning from an observational point of view and ease language learning processes considering that skills such as listening, speaking and verbal reasoning can be worked from watching ilustrated pictures and their later transfer to written code.
For teachers, Pedres can be used to work with students at different learning paces and considering individual diversity.
