Grazie alle favole e ai racconti di Rodari, sto riscoprendo la bellezza della narrativa italiana per bambini.
Se solo storie come "La freccia azzurra" venissero lette e raccontate alle nuove generazioni, forse, potrebbe esserci ancora speranza per il futuro.

fiaba meravigliosa di Gianni Rodari, dove i giocattoli si animano per affrontare mille pericoli in nome della giustizia, uguaglianza e dell'amicizia
da far leggere assolutamente ai più piccoli per apprezzare l'importanza di questi principi

A tender fairy-tale for children and adults as well. The language may sound a bit old-fashioned for modern Italian children though. As a matter of fact, the book was originally written in 1954 and published in the '60s. This must be the reason why my kids got tired of the book after few chapters, eventhough they love the animation movie inspired by it and they have watched it at least a thousand times. Nevermind. I ended up reading the book by myself and I really enjoyed it!
