Pablo Pineda - Ser Diferente Es Un Valor

Hardcover

 Medalla de oro en los premios Moonbeam Spirit Award e International Latino Book Awards de 2017. Pablo Pineda es el primer europeo con síndrome de Down en obtener un título universitario. Esta es su entrañable historia, que nos recuerda que la única discapacidad es la de no entender que todos tenemos capacidades diferentes.

 Pablo nació en una familia llena de amor, que cuando se dio cuenta de que su bebé tenía capacidades diferentes al resto de los niños, no dudó ni un segundo en enseñarle a ser la mejor versión de sí mismo. Sus padres lo apoyaron y le ayudaron a convertirse en una persona autónoma, y Pablo creció con muchos sueños que alcanzar. Aunque la sociedad dictaba que Pablo merecía unos cuidados especiales, él demostró que no hay una única manera de llegar a la meta y, valiéndose de su propio talento, logró convertirse en el primer europeo con Síndrome de Down en obtener un título universitario.

Pablo ha cosechado varios triunfos a lo largo de su vida hasta llegar a ser una figura muy popular: es conferenciante, maestro, escritor, actor galardonado con la Concha de plata del Festival de San Sebastián… Pero su mayor logro es, sin duda, servir de ejemplo para aquellos niños que le seguirán.
