According to the International Labour Organization 168 million children around the world stop playing every day, victims of child labour. As Moussa, some are in Africa, but there is no continent free of this terrible scourge.
“Moussa Sueña” is a book about the need to dream. Is about the need to change things. Is about the need to play. Moussa is a shepherd, that is the reason why he can still play and dream. But a lot of kids all around the world can’t dream, not only because of child labour but also because they have to bear adults’ bad decisions.
In this picture book, common sense is represented through the wisdom of nature. Moussa asks nature for help and the elephants are who show Moussa the way to find the solution of the problem.
Usually nature has the answer. Is through playing how children and little animals learn how to deal with life. That is the reason why this books defends children’s games. Playing is a foundamental right, because any children deserves to have their childhood’s stolen.
