What’s the best way to sleep? Upside down, on one leg or in your own bed?

When the little girl simply cannot fall asleep, her mother tells her how each of the animals go to sleep: the leopard in a tree, the bat hanging upside down, the stork on one leg and the fish even does it with its eyes open. But what’s the best way for children to go to sleep? Perhaps it would help to if they simply tried it out? Or is your own bed the best place after all?

-\x09A delightful goodnight book from the picture-book dream team Raab and Olten
-\x09Original, amusing and brimming with animal knowledge!

Remember how it used to be? Say how it is today! An interactive memory book for grandfathers and grandchildren in which they can write, draw and tell stories together.

What was it like when Granny was little? Did television exist? And what was her favourite food? Children want to know so much about their grandparents and they, in turn, often know too little about their grandchildren’s daily lives. In this shared memory book, both can enter the things that are most important to them and so preserve their best memories in word and pictures for all time. Because the two generations fill the album together, it becomes a treasure that could never be bought. On 112 beautiful pages in a child-appropriate four-colour design and with an opulent layout, a host of questions invite grandparents and grandchildren to provide the answers. The cover has slits especially for a cover photo. The perfect personal present for Grandpa and grandchild!

Grönemeyer, Dietrich (Author)

What is a cough really? How does the pancreas work? And how do antiobiotics work? Does herbal sleep tea really help you to sleep? If, like Nano, you are 12 years old and cannot wait to become a doctor any longer, you will be full of questions. What a good thing Nano not only has his grandmother’s stock of herbal remedies, but also Dr. X and his freaky assistant to help him make a fascinating journey through the human body. Along the way, he flies through gigantic gorges and catacombs, fights fearful monsters and dangerous killer commandos as well as meeting the tiniest robots imaginable.

The diagnosis is clear: up-to-date and compact, with lots of new information and a fresh, new look – Nano and his friends have undergone a fitness cure. Revised and even more up to date than ever, Prof. Grönemeyer’s Little Physician is at last out on an exciting mission once more. As a microscopic bodynaut, Nano battles treacherous robots and the evil Professor Shudder as he makes his way round the human body.
The Little Physician is much more than a wonderful children’s book. Playfully, Grönemeyer gives the young readers an awareness for their own body and for what will keep it healthy. What we have here is sound medical knowledge, humour and a portion of humaneness that makes the book a worthwhile read even for adults.
“A gripping expedition. Participants don’t even notice how easily they learn anatomy and biochemistry along the way.” Die Zeit

“Dietrich Grönemeyer’s The Little Physician is science fiction, detective story, family story and reference work all in one.” Die Zeit

“Explaining medical terminology so that it’s easy for children and young adults (and their parents) to understand is something the famous doctor is very good at.” Stern

Raab, Brigitte (Author) Olten, Manuela (Illustrator)

Incredible but true! The picture book of animal records. Is there a bird that can fly faster than a racing car? Could a parrot possibly live longer than Erik’s granddad? And anyway, nobody believes that ants are stronger than weightlifters! But all of this is true – and much more besides: a cow gives enough milk every day to fill 100 glasses, the seeds from dandelion clocks fly distances of up to a whole kilometre and some butterflies have such a keen sense of smell that they can track down another butterfly in the next village – even though they don’t even have a nose! A question and answer book that’s full of surprises, amusing and amazing! A picture book from the successful Raab/Olten team with humorous texts and innovative illustrations. Full of interesting facts. | 4 +

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…

Guessing fun with shadows. There’s so much to see in the bedroom, in the kitchen, on the farm, on the building site and in the street, and now there’s also lots to guess, from the building block tower to the goat on the farm, from the excavator to the zebra crossing. Some are only recognisable as a silhouette. So the idea is to look hard, think and guess, and perhaps you’ll be in for a surprise. Because you only get to see exactly what the object is when you open up the flap.

Interactive board picture book in extra-large format with oodles of guessing fun for the very young.
