How do you explain to very young children where they come from; the difference between boys and girls; why there are different kinds of love; how babies are born, and why some children have two mummies or two daddies? The best way to do it is with these entertaining, modern and sensitive stories suitable for young children.

                      Lina has been five years old for far too long already (once she’s six she’ll be able to go to school at last) and Mats is three (he can’t remember how long he’s been that old). The pair are brother and sister and they’re as thick as thieves – and that’s a good thing because when Lina starts putting one of her ideas into practice, there’s usually excitement in store for both of them. And Lina has an idea for every situation! Her ideas involve real fire fighters, secret hiding places in the playground at nursery school, a runaway from the riding school on the edge of town and the digger-dumper driver from the building site next door…

                                      Nick’s dad is a fireman and he and his colleagues have prepared something very special for the Fire Brigade festival: a small house with a fire for the children to put out themselves! But when Soha and her mother lock themselves out of their house, the firefighters are soon on the spot with their fire engines, too – and when a tree falls down in front of a nursery school, the men race to the scene in their red fire engines, sirens nee-nawing loudly … what a read-aloud adventure!

                                          Not easy to do but very important: who dares to say 'no’? Marie is really frightened of the gruesome green crocodile underneath her bed. But then she says 'no’ in a big, loud voice and the crocodile disappears all by himself. Tim actually likes his Aunt Ulla a lot, but he hates her revoltingly sticky lipstick kisses. The next time she comes to visit, he at last plucks up the courage to tell her so – and she isn’t even cross! Nine read-aloud stories about different occasions, drawing the line – there’s a story for every child here. Eight stories about saying 'no' – also ideal for nursery schools. With a prologue by Dr Anne Bischoff, whose field is children’s and young people’s psychiatry. | 3 +

                                              Franz can already read. A little bit. At least, he says he can. Yet he’s still only at play school. Gabi, who he likes much better than any of the boys, calls him a “great big fibber,” until Franz proves to her that he can even read picture books. Now Franz has to read everything out to her that’s written anywhere. And it really isn’t all that difficult – as long as there’s nobody around who can really read. | 8 +

This exceptional picture book stimulates their imagination and provides 14 possible and impossible situations with more than 50 illustrated answers to the question: “And what do you do now?” The children can talk about the different possibilities, visualise the situation and elaborate on it, make and reject decisions or simply laugh themselves silly over all the different alternatives.

                                                                    A picture book for reading aloud, taking part, reflecting on and laughing your head off over. It encourages creative thinking, is great fun, and also nice and big, so everyone can have a good look at the same time.
