Ice Who Fell in Love with the Sun, written by Reza Mozouni and illustrated by Meisam Mousavi, narrates a story of a piece of ice who falls in love with the Sun; a love which lives longer till the coming of spring pleasant sunny days.
The story propagates themes of friendship and affection. In a part of the story the ice whispers “what is the benefit of a life without loving others? What is the benefit of a life loving someone and not looking at the beloved?”
The Portuguese version will be sent to Brazil as a gift to the Brazilian children.
Back cover text in Portuguese addresses the Brazilian children. “My dear friend, I know what you are thinking about. I am also thinking about you and the sun which is smiling to the whole world. We are distant lovers and cannot shake hands; so let’s think a lot about one another,” it reads.

The Spanish version of the book had been already published.
