In this day and age, children are used to seeing images on computers, smart phones or tablets; but Mariana loves paper, canvas and blackboards (her whiteboard), so she was very proud of the earlier picture published in LFI.
I told her I had something mysterious to show her that she would love. At first, when she saw the magazine, she didn't get it, and her initial reaction was to complain, “it's not a toy!”; but a few second later, her fingers were itching to find the pictures. Finally she started to read. As she doesn’t speak English she pronounced the words all wrong, but in a funny and gracious way, and with a strong German accent. I've never seen her read like that nor could I imagine why she would read with a German accent (she only speaks Portuguese), as she has no idea that LFI is edited in Germany!”
