Two brothers–Space and Monkey–really don’t like going to sleep. Beds seem so boring. It’s different with sleeping outside! That’s quite an adventure!!!
Where Are We Sleeping Today? is a collection of 12 stories, each one happening in a different place. A sleepover in an igloo, a tipi, a train or in a self-built base is a great adventure. Of course, pyjamas and a favourite toy are not enough to spend the whole night in a tent, sailboat, camper van or under the stars. For sleeping outside, you have to prepare properly just like for a big trip. And that is just as awesome!
The idea for this book, which was born before the pandemic, is more relevant today than we anticipated.

內容簡介
在花園盡頭的堆肥中,在蛋殼和蘋果皮下面,有一個小生物——蚯蚓弗蘭基。 儘管天生就是一堆快樂的東西,但令弗蘭基感到困擾的是:與花園裡的朋友們不同,他認為自己無法做任何有用的事情。例如螞蟻會蓋房子,蜘蛛會織網,蜜蜂會給花授粉。 但是弗蘭基:一隻整天只是挖地面走廊的蚯蚓覺得自己什麼都不會做。 但是真的是這樣嗎?
除了具有強烈生態學意義的故事以及製備自製堆肥的說明外,西蒙娜·切切瓦(Simona Čechová)的新繪本Frankie from the Compost Pile還傳遞一個信息:儘管有時我們覺得像弗蘭基這麼小的看似不必要的生物顯得微不足道,但我們每個人在地球上都有屬於自己的位置,我們應該找到自己擅長的東西並引以為豪。

In a compost pile at the end of a garden, under the eggshells and apple peel, lives a small creature – Frankie the earthworm. And although he is by nature a cheerful fellow, it bothers him that unlike his friends from the garden, he cannot do anything useful – the ant builds houses, the spider makes webs, and the bee pollinates flowers. But František, who only digs small tunnels in the ground all day long, feels useless. Is he really, though? In addition to a story that carries a strong ecological message, Simona Čechová’s new illustrated book also provides instructions for making your own compost pile.

喬伊(Joey)住在一個沒有其他人居住,沒有任何生物生長的沙漠山谷中。
他常常感到非常悲傷,並且常常有離開家去找更好的生活場所的念頭。
直到一天早晨,喬伊(Joey)在他的小房子後面發現原來有一個驚喜一直在等待著他——那是一群流浪的蜜蜂正在尋找新家。
喬伊(Joey)對新鄰居感到非常高興,並做了一個蜂巢,讓他們和他可以在一起。
過了一陣子,他發現周圍的沙漠變成了一個陌生的地方:突然整個山谷到處都是盛開的樹木和七彩花朵。
其他動物知道這裡的怡人景色也搬進了喬伊(Joey)所居住的山谷,他覺得到自己不再孤單,也不再難過了。
他結識了新朋友,他養蜂,種水果和蔬菜。他再也沒有理由離開他的家園了。
第二年春天,喬伊(Joey)又有了新的驚喜——又有一群需要他幫助的蜜蜂。
在這本書中,孩子們將學習到照顧他人是多麼美好的一件事情。
也將學習到當我們渴望改變時,我們應該自己先邁出第一步。
本書還討論了蜜蜂的重要性以及它們的不可替代性。在最後10頁中,解釋了蜂蜜和蜂蜜酒的製作方法、蜜蜂如何給花朵授粉以及養蜂人需要哪些工具。

Joseph lived in a desert valley where no one lived, and nothing grew.
He was often very sad and full of thoughts of leaving his home and finding a better place for living. Until one morning when behind his little house a surprise awaited him. A stray bee swarm was looking for a new home. Joseph was very happy about the new neighbours and made a beehive for them to stay with him.
After a while he discovers that the desert land around him is turning into unrecognisable. Suddenly the whole valley was full of blooming trees and colourful flowers. Other animals stared to move into Josephs valley and he realises that he is neither alone nor sad anymore. He made new friends, takes care of the bees and grows fruits and vegetables. There is no reason why to leave his homeland anymore. And the next spring, there is a new surprise for Joseph – a new swarm of bees that need his help.
In this book children will learn how beautiful it is to take care of someone and that when we long for change, it is us who should make the first steps.
This book also talks about the importance of bees and how irreplaceable they are. On the last 10 pages it is explained how honey and mead is made, how bees pollinate flowers and what tools a beekeeper needs.

This picture book is fully loaded with the love between parents and their children.
Aha! It’s snowing! The mother panda went to the bamboo forest looking for cool and crisp bamboo. Her baby woke up but found his mother was nowhere. He was so anxious that he began to trace the footsteps of his mother in the forest. It’s not difficult for the mother to discover that her beloved boy was following her from afar, but neither of them shouted out to each other; instead, they started playing a game called “I Won’t Speak First ”… Snowflakes were fluttering around in the forest, everything was covered by the white snow, as pure as the love between mother and her child who are inseparable from each other.

畢卡索羅丹:一個通往藝術史上兩個神聖怪物的作品的新方式
通過比較和對比藝術界兩大巨頭:奧古斯特·羅丹(Auguste Rodin,1840-1917)和巴勃羅·畢卡索(1881-1973)的作品,這兩位非凡的藝術家在形式上的創新被認為是各自時代現代藝術的轉捩點。他們創作過程的交集揭示了他們調查過程中驚人的相似之處,例如實驗、大規模生產和形式不斷變化的性質。
這本包含 350 多件作品的圖冊將帶您探索兩位藝術家之間的對話,以及這些意想不到的聯繫中反復出現的層面。

Comparing and contrasting the works of two giants of the art world, Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) and Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), reveals points of overlap that are common knowledge and others that are explored for the first time. The innovations in form created by these two extraordinary artists are considered turning points in the modern art of their respective times. The intersection of their creative processes sheds light on striking similarities in their investigative process, such as experimentation, mass production and the ever-changing nature of their forms. This illustrated catalogue of more than 350 works allows you to discover a dialogue between the two artists and recurring facets of these unexpected connections.

This board book is a real treasure for kids who are just taking first steps to explore the world around, and their parents. What else if not a book is the best way to start communication with a child? What else if not a native home full of such different and important things is the first place to start discovering the world? Page after page, different rooms and things inside them — a bed, slippers, a cup, a tap, and favourite toys will appear before little amazed eyes. Looking at pictures, touching them, and searching for something new and important, pronouncing or even singing some of the names, repeating after father or mother — the book My Room, My Home, and Things I Own suggests a lot of possibilities for studying, development and spending quality time with a family.
