Children and grown-ups

A mother is like a home

A mother is a home, a nest, a fountain, a shelter, a mirror, a tree, a show, a hurricane, a doctor, and a medicine ... We can read her in a million different ways, just like a book. A beautiful metaphor of motherhood, written and illustrated by Aurore Petit.

The night

Night has come. Everybody's sleeping, even animals do. Or so it seems. Some lights are still on and this quiet summer night bustles with people, cats, owls, dogs and tiny details. Someone's reading at the library, someone's at the park, someone's pitching a tent, someone has stolen Susanne's hat, someone has forgotten to switch their bike-light on, and someone's flying away. After her wonderful Wimmelbuch series, Susanne Berner portrays a night sequence in the same town, showing a secret, dark, precious world. [Text in Italian]

Tic tic

A little boy and a bird. A cute mysterious thing that once was there and then no more. What does "no more" mean to a child? This meeting on a balcony becomes a true experience of knowledge. A story as simple as wide as children's curiosity, by renowned writer Nicola Cinquetti, and illustrated by Juliana Salcedo, here at her first book published in Italy.

Have a nice trip, little boy! (New edition)

Every night, there is a baby at the starting line. Preparations are accurate and scrupulous: toys, suitcase, bath, book, kisses. And everybody at home is involved: mom, dad, and even the cat.

A small affectionate book to accompany children to bed every night. And to teach parents the importance of loving gestures that help them face the night, whic is dark, but it it is beautiful and serene too. Have a nice trip, little boy!
