Pachas Pajamas: A story written by nature
Pacha’s Pajamas is an urban fairy tale that centers on a little girl with big dreams. One night, the animals and plants on her new pajamas come alive. Entering her dream as a small gorilla, she comes upon an unlikely group of creatures feeling sad about the state of the world. Nature unites to tell its captivating story at a global festival where species have come together to bring balance to the planet. They build a stadium, half land, half water and powered by electric eels. Fun-filled acts include an insect band called The Beetles, a black-eyed pea rapping for a better world and a beaver named Just-in-Time. At the end of the show, Pacha shares an important message for all of nature and humanity.
My fourth grader is still learning about how we rely on nature, and where resources comes from. One of the highlights for her was the beautiful artwork that accompanies each page showing the different aspects of the story. She loved the educational element ‘Pachas Fun Facts’ and the call to action to join ‘Pachas Posse’ is empowering to young people. Pachas Pajamas will inspire a new appreciation of the importance of nature and the enviroment.
