The first book on the story of “Che” Guevara for kids
Spain, February 13, 2011
Editorial La Marca published the book “Che, the star of a revolutionary”. With texts of Editorial Marea, Constanza Brunet and Guido Indij, it is the first educational book on the man who freed Cuba from the pro-USA government.
Indij sadi: “We decided to take out a collection of books on historical men for children. What better man to start than Che Guevara”.
In Argentina there already is a controversy. It is for sure that a book on a socialist freedom fighter would not receive flowers and 5 stars from certain groups. That is why the discussion is set on whether to give use this book for Primary Education or not.
“It’s a bit revolutionary this book, and many parents and people will judge it, but those who read and understand its message will understand it”, Indij explained.
The book is authorized to be used on primary schools in Spain.
