Críticas

A história de Nadadorzinho, como todos os livros de Leo Lionni, convida a pensar e a aprender valiosas lições de vida. O valor da diferença e o respeito que se deve a quem -por cultura ou aspecto físico -não partilha das características comuns, reflecte-se nas primeiras páginas deste clássico da literatura infantil de todos os tempos.
