Children’s Book Dedicated to Chavez at Venezuelan Book Fair

The Ministry for Communications and Information presented and distributed a biography of Hugo Chavez in the form of a children’s story, at the 10th International Book Fair of Venezuela (Filven 2014).

Written by journalist and writer Armando Carias, with illustrations by Balbi Cañas, the 24-page book consists of ten chapters.

It shows in an attractive and peculiar way the life of a child born in Sabaneta de Barinas, in the plains of Venezuela, who became a Latin American giant whose remains rest today at Cuartel de la Montaña (the Mountain’s Garrison).

“If we talk about ages, it is to be read by children, but Balbi’s illustration is so attractive and it can be understood so well that, regardless of their age, any child can enjoy it,” author Armando Carías told to the press.

The literary work, written and published in just three months, resulted from the attraction Carias felt for Chavez and how he related to children.

“He was a loving person and for those who work with children, it was very pleasant to see how a president had that kind of expression with children,” he said.
