Existentialism for young thinkers. To be read with the youngest in the family!
In this heart-warming story, a young philosopher, in search of herself, bravely ventures out to see, touch, and taste a world filled with all kinds of new and interesting things.
On a way out, there is the check for keys, hat, lights and keys once more. The little one ponders ‘What about me?‘ for her very own big person is nott checking for her existence. Once outside, she searches for herself everywhere, only to find herself later at home.
This joyful ‘search story’ is a delight, and its repetitive motion and rhythm and vocabulary together with Vasko’s clear and colourful illustrations also support learning.
As they turn the pages of this book, young readers will experience one joy after another. Concise writing and eye-catching pictures will fascinate all one-year-old book worms and their parents.
This book takes you, the little one,
Together with your very own big person,
On a journey to ponder about your unique existence.
Experience this book togehter, with all your senses.
This book is dedicated to you.
