"It was missing a piece. And it was not happy. So it set off in search of its missing piece. And as it rolled it sang this song--Oh I'm lookin' for my missin' piece -- I'm lookin' for my missin' piece -- Hi-dee-ho, here I go, Lookin' for my missin' piece. What it finds on its search for the missing piece is simply and touchingly told in this fable that gently probes the nature of quest and fulfillment."--Dust jacket flap.

I really liked the missing piece because I liked the song and guess what? I even made a little tune for it! I thought it was about friendship and adventures. Bye!

"La pieza faltante" es un libro para niños y adultos que puede relacionarse con la motivación y la autoestima. La historia en metáfora sobre la búsqueda de aquello que sentimos nos hace falta, es contada e ilustrada de manera sencilla y divertida. A veces vamos por la vida sin mirar, sin apreciar lo que nos rodea o a las personas que nos rodean; no disfrutamos de su presencia; otras veces nos lanzamos a una búsqueda constante por cosas o personas que creemos necesitar y forzamos su adquisición o presencia para luego olvidarnos que contamos con ellos o nos topamos con obstáculos, actitudes, respuestas que nos hacen sentir incómodos, que nos lastiman. ¿Estamos bien con lo que somos y tenemos? ¿Lo apreciamos? ¿O acaso vamos por la vida buscando "nuestra pieza faltante"?
