Luhn, Usch (Author)

Cookies, kisses, catastrophes!

Holidays at last! But for Charlotte, the trip she was planning with her friends won’t be happening because she doesn’t have the money. Instead she spends the summer running her mother’s not terribly successful sandwich bar with the help of Jamie, a trainee chef, and Metin, Charlotte’s best friend. Together, the three cook up the perfect plan for turning the sandwich bar into something really cool. Sound good? Yes, but it all gets pretty complicated, too, because Jamie is in love with Rosalie (who isn’t interested in him), Metin thinks he’s mad about Charlotte, and Charlotte doesn’t know which of the two is cuter, Jamie or Metin…

Usch Luhn’s story of city kids and their escapades is infused with Berlin atmosphere, and contains an amazing plan and stacks of tasty cookies. With some fantastic cookie recipes at the back!

How to teach media skills to children – without turning it into a lesson

The author Benjamin Wockenfuß is a social media manager and addiction therapist who also runs the project DigiKids for the Hessian state office for addiction issues, which is sponsored by the TK health insurance fund. It supports the idea that digital media belongs to the world in which our children live and that it is not a question of either/or but rather the need to recognise that digital and analogue are both part of the same interactive process.
A story that triggers the imagination and shows that Lotta has fun learning to look beyond the edge of her father’s smartphone screen.

With an introduction by the author, actor, blogger and Grimme Award winner Schlecky Silberstein.

The DigiKids Project:
DigiKids is a media competence project that can be implemented from kindergarten onwards and was first introduced in 2017. The aim is to give children confidence in dealing with digital environments instead of being dominated by them. At the same time, DigiKids seeks to retain the children’s connection to the analogue world by strengthening it and developing it further. The project also aims at involving parents and teachers in the process and provides them with support training.
The TK health insurance fund Techniker Krankenkasse at present supports pilot projects in Hesse.
