Ida loves to swing - especially with her<br />

grandfather. When he dies unexpectedly one<br />

day, family and friends answer Ida's questions<br />

honestly, mostly gently, sometimes childishly<br />

bluntly. Immortal jellyfish are just as much a<br />

topic as people in heaven, and bit by bit Ida<br />

comes to understand what dying and death<br />

are all about.<br />

Elena Berz has written a touching book about<br />

the loss of a human being. Enchantingly<br />

illustrated with watercolors by Marine Ludin.

Waiting - that's not always easy for children ... Emil waits longingly for<br />

the snow, even in kindergarten he keeps looking out of the window. At<br />

home, he makes himself comfortable with his mother. Together they<br />

watch the clouds in the sky and see how it gets darker and darker. And<br />

then it actually starts to snow ...<br />

When quiet comes, there is time for magical moments, time to relax and<br />

yet discover many things: the safety, the warmth and the shared<br />

anticipation. The book is about mindfulness and the peace that (even)<br />

children should feel every now and then, despite all the hustle and<br />

bustle. The illustrations are also magical, integrating a real cloud photo<br />

on each page. They show how the sky changes and thus develop a<br />

unique charm.

Alia suddenly learns that her father has cancer, and this changes her life<br />

completely. She tries to find out what is behind this illness and discovers<br />

that the adults around her are also overwhelmed by the situation. With<br />

her persistence and warmth, she manages to make the daily hospital life<br />

of her father and his roommate Theo a little more colorful. But because<br />

she feels guilty about the illness, wants to do everything right and can't<br />

allow anger and sadness, she reaches her own limits.<br />

A touching children's book that very authentically reflects how children<br />

think, that they often blame themselves for illnesses and try to make<br />

everything okay. At the same time, it is a cheerful book that, despite the<br />

threatening illness, allows for positive thoughts and joie de vivre. With<br />

colorful illustrations inside.

Lola lives with her mother on the "pea", a houseboat down by the river.<br />

Ever since her father disappeared, Lola refuses to grow and lives in her<br />

fantasy world. No wonder she is horrified when Kurt, her mother's new<br />

boyfriend, shows up. But then she meets the mysterious Pelle ...<br />

The novel "Lola auf der Erbse" (first published in 2008) was nominated<br />

for the Catholic Children's and Young People's Book Prize, the Prix<br />

Chronos and the AKJ Young Author's Prize and has been translated into<br />

Can animals dream? And what do they dream? In dreams, animals<br />

can do what is otherwise impossible: the mole dreams of seeing and<br />

reading books, the birds dream of seeing snow and ice instead of<br />

always flying south, and the dirty little pig dreams of a wonderful<br />

bubble bath.<br />

When we dream, we can be anything. Together with the children,<br />

discover dreams and consider what of them might come true, and -<br />

this is the end of this wonderful picture book - how everyone can<br />

live their dream.

"Write me a story!" wishes Odilia. And so her mother's friend tells her<br />

about the rabbit with the much too long ears and the curious moon,<br />

who actually only wanted to take a quick look in the window of the<br />

house that lies on his way home. But then he is supposed to help the<br />

rabbit in the big super-rabbit race, even though he has to do his duty in<br />

the sky. And then the supervisory authority comes to check whether he<br />

is also working properly ...<br />

A story on two levels, which gets a very special dynamic through the<br />

accompanying dialogues of Odilia and the narrator. "Rabbit and Moon"<br />

Mr. and Mrs. Hedgehog wish for a teeny tiny baby, but unfortunately it<br />

doesn't want to work out. They ask the other animals of the forest, the<br />

rabbits with their little long ears, the wild boars with their freshlings and<br />

finally the wise owl. All of them give well-meaning tips, but what suits the<br />

other animals does not help the hedgehog couple. When they finally<br />

return to what hedgehogs like to do, the wait is finally over ...<br />

Sometimes it is difficult to have a child. Or it takes a long time to get<br />

there. Many couples have to find their own way here. The not-so-simple<br />

topic is explained in this animal fable in an easy and child-friendly way.<br />

And conveys two important messages: "Everyone is different" and "Stay<br />

true to yourself".

they do is jump over the fence - Emil lands in the tree. But where is<br />

Milli? Then they jump into a puddle. But where is Emil? They play<br />

hide and seek. Where is Milli hiding now? The two animal children go<br />

from one game to the next. No, they are not bored. Especially not<br />

when they visit Grandma Moo at the end ...<br />

The little readers can go in search of Milli the pig and Emil the<br />

donkey behind flaps. In the process, they discover many loving<br />

details on the wonderfully designed pages. The typography in handlettering<br />

style and the special mixed technique of hand-drawn and<br />

collage make the book an experience beyond the typical toddler<br />

kid, then 2, then 3 ... On each side one joins and they start to play. They<br />

paint on the dragon's belly, are wild pirates or climb over the prongs on<br />

its back. And the dragon? He sleeps and dreams a dragon dream. Until<br />

suddenly ...<br />

Rich in detail and lovingly drawn, this book is a fun way to practice the<br />

numbers from 1 to 10. In addition, there are many small additional<br />

stories, such as the squirrels' picnic, the mice's bath in the goldfish bowl<br />

or the rabbit's vegetable garden. The illustrations are complemented by<br />

short rhymes. With a lot of fun, the book encourages learning to count<br />

and incidentally also trains the attention of small readers.
