Commended Title, 2023 Am ricas Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature (Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs)

Fernando Llort is a major point of reference for the art and iconography of El Salvador.

Llort escaped the political instability of his capital in favor of the peaceful mountains of La Palma, a small town in the northern region of El Salvador. Here, Llort would awaken an artisan movement out of the agricultural workers, educating them on how to make a living using their artistic skills. His teachings led the commune to sow the beginnings of the local handicraft movement, inspired by the Semilla de Dios, or Seed of God. The agricultural faction of the town quickly turned into an artisanal atmosphere, fueling employment outside of field work. Llort moved back to the capital, but not without staying in contact with the people of La Palma and showing the rest of El Salvador that making a living using art was possible.

Parents will find this bilingual English-Spanish biography board book on Fernando Llort creative to little ones wanting to try their hand at artistry and find beauty in colors
