Why This Christmas Is Different

https://www.amazon.com/Philipp-Winterberg/e/B0046S0JVW

This year, 2016, for the first time in human history, thousands of children all around the globe will find a very unique gift under the christmas tree...

The gift they will receive is the first "World Children's Book" ever. What is a world children's book? It's a book that is available for every country in at least one official language. There are 6.000-8.000 languages spoken on Earth today and there are some books, e.g. "The Little Prince", that are available in a few hundred languages, yet these books leave out several countries.

The book "Am I small?" covers all countries, the whole world. It took more than five years of intense work to reach world children's book status. A team of over 200 translators has worked on this project and more than 1.000 print and eBook editions in more than 120 languages are available by now, many of which are bilingual. This is what readers and reviewers say:

"immensely enjoyable"—ForeWord Clarion Reviews

"I have been teaching my children German for some time now. I wanted to go from just doing flash cards to reading children's books in the language. This book is beyond perfect. It's easy to read, and easy to follow. The sentences are all short and when the time comes it'll be easy for my kids to read as well. Illustrations are also very cute. I totally recommend." -- Amazon Customer Review, 11/17/2016

"for children who enjoy lingering over pages full of magical creatures and whimsical details [...] told in simple and engaging words and imaginative pictures.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Love reading this with my kids! Helps refresh my language skills and my kids love to listen! Cute illustrations and a fun story. Great book to add to any library!"
-- Amazon Customer Review, 9/13/2016

"Excellent value" -- Amazon Customer Review, 9/28/2016

Don't be late... don't miss this opportunity... act now! Let your child find this once in a lifetime gift under the christmas tree and celebrate with the whole world!

New Arrivals: Dual Language Editions of "St. James Way in a Tuxedo"


New arrivals: "St. James Way in a Tuxedo" is now available in 12 bilingual editions: English-French, English-German, English-Spanish etc.

St. James' Way in a Tuxedo? Really? Really. A Danish pilgrim has arrived wearing his finest get-up because he thinks that Spanish restaurants won't let him in otherwise. 

Other pilgrims bring their hammocks, huge dictionaries, solar-powered chargers, bags full of supplies, batteries... 

For more than a thousand years, pilgrims have followed St. James' Way – you would expect that by now, word about a good packing list would have spread already. 

On the contrary: many pilgrims arrive with enormous backpacks, weighing 20-30 kilograms, and damage their feet, knees and shoulders before spending lots of money on sending huge packages back home. 

In short episodes, the author describes the confusion of getting equipment, eventually making his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela carrying only 3 kilograms in his backpack. 

This equipment guide is a must-have for every pilgrim!
