Water Worlds in Children's Books

Third edition

Whether as a backdrop to adventure tales, as mysterious chasms in fairy-tales and legends, or as an object of study in non-fiction books, water has found many entry ways into children’s and youth literature. 59 books in which water plays a central role were chosen for this exhibition: classics and modern titles, picture books and novels, fantasy stories and non-fiction volumes.

This recently revised exhibition will appeal to readers of all ages. Many books are especially well-suited for children’s programmes and school programmes.

59 books (original German volumes or editions in German translation), 16 picture and text panels.

Includes an exhibition catalogue

Available in German
