’Murmuring’

A rhyming picturebook full of onomatopoeic words with an unexpected twist. Read it out loud to hear a variety of rustling, mubmling, whispering and chiming that comes out at night to visit King Chrzęston at his palace.

In our opinion it is a perfect bedtime story – with colorful illustrations, creative and intriguing characters and a text full of murmurs, burbles and swishes.

Ulica Siedmiu Mikołajów

’Seven Santas Street’

Staś will be seven this December – no wonder it’s his favourite month of the year! He just can’t wait to play out in the snow, spot the first Christmas star and meet his family coming to town from far away.

A charming and timeless winter story showing us Christmas from the children’s perspective; a tale about a tight-knit community, making new traditions and gifting things that really matter.

Aliaszka

‘Aliaszka’ is a debut novel of famous polish actress Magdalena Górska. A collection of seven short shories revolving around a small doll – named Aliaszka – that helps kids overcome difficult situations, find their inner strength and face obstacles with courage and optimism.

In our modern world children often find themselves navigating circumstances they may not fully understand: technology is now commonly used in bullying; busy, stressed parents can sometimes push a little too hard; their peers can carry heavy burdens, often including refugee experiences. By writing this book the author tries to help children understand that they’re not alone in those problems – by spreading the message of hope she encourages them to stay brave when things look tough or frightening.

The writing of the book was overlooked by dr Anna Szczepaniak, psychologist and child psychotherapist. She added an analysis of each chapter, giving helpful pointers to parents or teachers on talking with their children about themes discussed in the book.

The publication has been granted a honorary patronage by ‘Fundacja Dajemy Dzieciom Siłę’ – one of the most important polish organisation promoting and protecting children rights across the country.
