Los niños cubanos nos criamos con este libro, y resulta inevitable guardar un recuerdo agradable al recorres sus páginas.

Salió de una revista que editaba Martí en el exilio y fue recopilada para editar el libro. Contiene poemas, cuentos geniales y tambien historias educativas para niños como la historia del hombre contada por sus casas, juegos nuevos y viejos, y muchos más.

Además hay su toquecito de historia pero sobre todo el modo suave de escribir de MArtí, que resulta una experiencia intere

Ten en cuenta que español no es mi primer idioma.

¿Cómo se puede criticar este libre? (O más debidamente, una colección de revistas)

Se dice en las otras críticas que cada cubano lee La Edad de Oro en su infancia, porque José Martí fue un gran patriota y escritor. Y puedo ver porque se habla así. Las mejores partes tratan de la época colonial, incluyendo la vidas de Bartolomé de las Casas, Simón Bolívar, José de San Martín, y Hidalgo. Martí dice que los héroes no pueden ser perfecto; aún el sol ti

Recommends it for: To anyone who likes Stories Mixed in with History
I love this book, I read this book and was stunned that not only did it have Children's Stories, but also History and knowledge of Different Cultures mixed in it.

I had to read this when I was in school, probably around 7th or 8th grade. Jose Marti, the Cuban poet and independence fighter, was exiled for a time in New York City. During that time, one of his projects was this: La Edad de Oro, a magazine for children. Now, keep in mind this was the late 19th century or so, thus we are not talking the crappy pap kids get fed today. Marti treated children like human beings who were smart and capable of learning and growing up to be productive citizens and mem ...more

I read this thinking of my mother, who read this as a girl in Cuba. While many of the sections are really outdated (and as a result not too interesting and sometimes problematic), I loved reading the poetry, the themes of charity, and finding humor in an entire section about pin the tail on donkey, the hottest new game of the moment. ...more

It was directed for kids at the end of the nineteen century.
In my opinion, the best part is the description of the World Fair in Paris at that time.

This charming and melancholic little book is even more moving by the foreknowledge that its author would soon leave New York to serve against the Spanish in the American-Spanish war... His pages on the Paris exposition and particularly on the significance of the Eiffel Tower as a symbol of a new era is fantastic, as is his bios on the lives of American liberators. A great gift for children and young adults (as this book was originally intended for them)

I simply cannot review this book without bias because this book was so much a part of my childhood. There is "A Little Prince", there is "A Little Princess", and then there's "La Edad de Oro." All classics, all beautiful.

Ojalá los libros para niños de ahora fueran tan baratos como esta recopilación de revistas de Martí.
