What is a Child?

Beatrice Alemagna

What is a Child (“Che cos’è un bambino?”) written and illustrated by the best-selling, multi award-winning Italian author and illustrator, Beatrice Alemagna, poses an interesting question: What is a child?

The pages of the book are filled with inspiring portraits of children that highlight the different features and thoughts that make each child unique. Looking at and thinking about each portrait leads to physical, emotional, and cognitive insights, some of which even hint at future implications for each child’s personality.

“The children are like sponges. They absorb everything into them: your nervousness, your bad ideas, your fears. It seems like they forget, but then things peek out of the schoolbag or under the sheet, or even when they read a book.”

This is an exemplary book for starting a conversation between parents and children, inspiring parents to bring up memories from their childhood as well.

Our publishing house aims to encourage conversations between parents and children because we believe this is the best way to optimize their development.

The book “What is a Child” has been translated into 14 languages: English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), Korean, Greek, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Romanian, Hebrew and Arabic.
