Escape from boredom.
A gray day, somewhere in a big city. A girl is bored and longs for adventure. Suddenly, the nameless heroine of the book notices a red pencil lying on the floor of her nursery. She picks it up, begins to draw, and discovers that the pen has special powers: It can be used to literally color in the adventures she longs for. And this journey full of wonders and dangers has it all. Remarkably, the richly detailed illustrated book tells its captivating story without a single written word.
From Time to Time, Friendship Works a Miracle.
Time, as a concept, is two-faced. The ancient Greeks distinguished between objectively measurable time (chronos) and the subjective time of the right moment (kairos). Isaac Newton’s concept of “absolute time” was long considered set in stone in the natural sciences until Albert Einstein formulated the theory of relativity. And philosophers of all eras linked time to human consciousness in one way or another.
Fair enough for the grown-ups, you might think. But children, who supposedly live happily in and for the moment, as poets like to put it, have a sense and awareness of time as well. Adults tend to underestimate the attribute in question when dealing with children. While adults mostly couldn’t fail to notice feelings of boredom, children’s experiences with patience and impatience, the beginning and the end of things, and, finally, even the question of death seem to remain a blind spot. The children’s books in this selection address questions of time as a concept. Their content feeds less on definitions established by adults but on experiences and feelings that children associate with time.
