La Edad de Oro, obra que tras su aparición como revista mensual en 1889, y como libro durante los primeros años del siglo XX, ha tenido una presencia constante en el horizonte editorial hispanoamericano.

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

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.
It was a great exercise to revive my spanish. Thanks to librivox for the free recording.
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

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.
