Our Greatest Gift — Giving thanks for a lifetime of pampering, attention, and unconditional love is no easy task. Yet, neither Román nor Ferrándiz has found a more beautiful way of doing it, between delicate verses and precious illustrations full of tenderness. Is there a more precious gift than a heart full of gratitude??This is how such a magical picture book was born, from the purest and most sincere feelings, accompanied by illustrations of great beauty, but above, from a sense of immense gratitude. A homage to our loved ones: parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. So dear and present, tireless in their life project: to make ours easier and more beautiful.Our elders, those magical beings, must now receive the tribute they deserve for everything they have given us: care, understanding, shelter, protection, complicity, games, and knowledge.

About the Author

José Carlos Román García was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. After graduating in Teaching and later in Pedagogy, he has for more than 20 years dedicated himself in body and soul to his great passion: Children's Education Teacher. Developing this professional work, he gradually entered the wonderful world of children's literature. A tireless reader of children's books and in continuous search for meaningful titles to take to the classroom to delight the little ones, little by little his interest in writing stories for children began to awaken, and in 2016 he began his career in the publishing world with the publication of his first illustrated album.

Elena Ferrándiz spent her childhood in San Fernando, Cádiz, surrounded by colored pencils. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Seville, where she specialized in printmaking. Since then, she has combined her passion for art and literature through her work as an illustrator for major publishers, national newspapers and prominent institutions and organizations.  In the narrative field, her illustrations have brought to life the works of Emilia Pardo Bazán or Virginia Woolf, among many other famous and outstanding classics. In the world of picture books, she has shared her facet as an illustrator with other writers, but she has also published her own works where she plays with words and images, giving us an insight into her own particular universe full of metaphors. Her most conceptual work has been featured on the Spanish National Television program “The Adventure of Knowledge”.
