Gentlemen, Start Your Engines! featured in Octane's July issue. "Verführerisch. Denn die Auswahl gleicht nicht so sehr einem Geschichtsbuch als vielmehr einer Kunstausstellung, sie soll zum Nachdenken anregen, auch Gefühle aufwühlen."
Nothing fosters children’s imaginations better than a book. Good books spark their natural curiosity, help them understand the world and hearten them to be brave. With this in mind, we’ve worked with wonderful illustrators and storytellers to launch a new program of books for young readers and creative parents this year. Following the spring release of Kleine Gestalten, our list of children’s books in German, we proudly present our new collection of children’s books in English entitled Little Gestalten.
Enjoy discovering these new titles with your little ones or just for yourself!
In a very poetic way, Elsa and the Night tells the story of an extraordinary friendship. The night not only listens to Elsa, but also accompanies her on a heartwarming journey where it protects her and finally carries her through the town in its arms. This book is ideal for bedtime reading to get your child to sleep.
This book is available in English and German.
Issun Bōshi: The One-inch Boy by Icinori
This classic Japanese fairy tale encourages children to find courage through the story of Issun Bōshi, the tiny son of an old, long childless couple. Tested in many adventures, Bōshi, who is a one-inch tall warrior, handles himself so bravely that, in the end, he is rewarded with an attractive princess.
Children love animals, letters, and games involving numbers. With this book, even the youngest children can playfully learn their ABCs, the names of animals, and how to count.
Alphabetics: An Aesthetically Awesome Alliterated Alphabet Anthology by Patrick and Traci Concepción
Little Red Riding Hood by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, illustrated by Clémentine Sourdais
Almost every child knows the story of the little girl who was lured from the forest path by the evil wolf. Now you can rediscover it with this enchanting little book. Fold out its pages and hold them in front of a light to see the traditional tale as a striking play of shadows.
Another classic fairy tale gets a visual update by the French illustrator Clémentine Sourdais. The new Puss In Boots also features cut-out illustrations that can be used to create an enchanting play of shadows.
As your children become pre-teens and teens, their probing questions aren’t getting any easier. Yet you don’t need to sweat. We’ve made a cheat sheet of nine essential answers and a video trailer from the book that will make your parent talk about puberty a little easier.
