Daniela Kulot: Reim dich durch den Januar und den Rest vom ganzen Jahr

Rhyme your way through January and through the rest of the year, too!

Reim dich durch den Januar und den Rest vom ganzen Jahr
In June, perhaps just on a whim, the little froggies learn to swim.
In January, bears sleep in their caves deep under the snow.
In May the trees blossom and in August it’s so hot and sunny that the tomcat can do nothing but sit lazily under a tree and dream of raspberry ice cream.
A book that helps the very small ones to learn the months and seasons!

A Year with the Storks

Ein Jahr mit den Störchen
Who doesn’t know and love this elegant red-stockinged bird? In many countries the stork is considered a bearer of good luck. In this illustrated nonfiction book we get to know “Master Adebar” very well as we accompany him on his journey through the year: we see how he builds his nest on the roof of the barn in springtime and how he then raises the hatched chicks with his mate. Then we tag along with the young storks as they fly to Africa for the winter and accompany them a couple of months later on their dangerous return home.
With expert, feather-light brushstrokes, Thomas Müller acquaints us with the lives of this large and beautiful bird. The narrative section is supplemented with additional valuable information about black storks, cranes and herons.

Train Kids
The 14-year-old Miguel leaves his village in the Guatemalan mountains to find his mother. Years ago, she left him and his sister Juana to work in the United States. She has stayed in this far-away land for many years, never coming back, although she has been promising to do so again and again. But Miguel doesn’t want to be put off anymore. He needs to find out about his mother’s disappearance. Has she stopped loving him and his sister?
With a heavy heart Miguel leaves his sister behind and starts out on a long northbound journey. At the Mexican border he meets others who have the same destination: mysterious Fernando, little Ángel, smart Jaz and silent Emilio. They decide to take a chance together. All of them are driven by their longing for the people they have lost and by their hope for a better life.
Freight trains are the only way to cross Mexico. And soon Miguel and the others realize that they are part of a much bigger trek rolling northbound. Thousands of people are travelling as blind passengers on the trains, facing many risks. One false step when jumping on the train, one unattended moment on the roof, one careless slumber at night and their lives might be over. Corrupt police men and greedy robber bands are hunting them. They are suffering from thirst and hunger, from the heat in the jungle, the coldness in the mountains and the drought in the desert.

The Green Sea Turtle

Die Grüne Meeresschildkröte
Far, far away on the other side of the globe, a small green sea turtle hatches out of her egg on the shores of the Australian island Raine. We look on as she takes her first wobbly steps in the darkness towards the water’s edge, and we accompany her on her journey through the great expanses of the ocean. On her trip she encounters many fascinating creatures: the majestic blue whale, the lazy manatee, the adaptable mimic octopus and many other fish of the most beautiful colors and most curious forms. After decades of travel, the sea turtle returns to her home.
She mates with a male sea turtle off the shores of Raine Island and makes her way to the beach to lay her eggs.
A couple of weeks later, in the middle of the night, something’s moving in the sand…

A Year With The Owls

Ein Jahr mit den Eulen
“In March, you can already feel the Spring arriving. On one of the first mild evenings, strange sounds can be heard in the dusk – a vibrating noise and callings. The sounds come from two large birds that are circulating in an elegant covey like shadows around the church spire. These are barn owls on their display flight. The male owl is following purringly the female one. He wants to win her over and show her his nesting site in the church spire. “

With expert, feather-light brushstrokes, Thomas Müller acquaints us with the lives of this mysterious and beautiful bird. The narrative section is supplemented with additional valuable information about the Barn Owl, the Long-eared Owl, the Minerva's owl and the Brown Owl.

A Year with the Sparrows

Ein Jahr mit den Spatzen
They prefer to cavort in groups, clamour loudly and curiously explore their environment - sparrows are like children, and that is perhaps why children like these cheeky birds so much! With this wonderfully illustrated picture book, we accompany the sparrows through the year, are present during the search for a suitable nesting site and experience how the sparrow babies hatch from the eggs. They soon go on a discovery tour and, like their parents, like to forage in the middle of the city - until they finally have to look for a nesting site themselves in spring. As in his non-fiction picture book Ein Jahr mit den Schwalben (A Year with the Swallows), Thomas Müller also describes the sparrows' habitat in a child-friendly way in this unusual book about sparrows and illustrates the view into the sparrows' world with lovingly drawn pictures.
