Spanish term or phrase: help with (idiomatic?) sentence
This is a quote from an artist known for his somewhat didactic children's stories and illustrations. The artist is childlike himself, and fascinated by children. So this is what he says about his aims in his work, after having just stated his desire to be their "Rey Mago":

"Al niño hay que darle todos los zumos con sabor tierno, y hay que interesarlo por el dolor, para despertarle el espíritu de caridad hacia lo que no está sano."

Thank you for the help; my brain has turned to mush!

Explanation:
We must give the child all the fresh tasting juices of live, and get him involved in pain, to awaken the spirit of compassion for things that are not wholesome

Just a suggestion.
