Im Dschungel wird gewählt & The alphabet is not a planet
New children’s books
The lion has re-routed the river in the jungle and built a large swimming pool directly in front of his cave. The other animals are angry, they have no more water and feel betrayed. They start a demonstration and decide to elect a new jungle leader. But what is an election? And what exactly does democracy mean? Who stands for election and how exactly does it work? These are precisely the questions addressed in the children’s book »Im Dschungel wird gewählt« (original title “Eleicao dos Bichos”), which encourages dialog about living together.
It is based on workshops held with children in Brazil and is written with children for children. The illustrations and texts by Larissa Ribeiro, André Rodrigues, Paula Desgualdo and Pedro Markun are to the point and easy to understand. At the end of the book there is an appendix that briefly summarizes and explains the most important terms. A must-have for all parents who want to explain to their children at an early age how decisions can be made in a community for the good of all.

The Alphabet Is Not a Planet—a Crazy Reading Adventure in Two Languages
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, what kind of ABC is that? Was astronaut monkey Anton really in space with Buzz Aldrin? Was the Donutosaurus Rex one of the most legendary dinosaurs of all time? Are there narwhals that fit into a nutshell? Or is it all just nonsense? The fact is: This universe is teeming with curious creatures and strange symbols. Page by page, little ABC explorers can navigate through the cosmos of letters as if with a compass and get to know the whimsical creatures from A to Z illustrated by Alex Hanke. Alphabetastic reading fun!
