Does childhood fit into playing house?
Storyteller Dilek Emir’s first children’s book turns into a visual feast with master artist Huban Korman’s illustrations. The joyful story that brings together four children living in the same apartment building, in a playing house game, glorifies the boundless imagination of childhood. It focuses on the fascinating universe of children’s games surrounded by creativity, which is the first step of learning about life. This multi-colored book, ideal for joint reading, opens to us the doors of friendship, thinking together, sharing, helping and kindness.
Ayça, Selin, Gökçe and Can… Four neighbors are playing house in the garden of their apartment building. They have to divide up important tasks such as who will cook the food, who will go to work, who will take care of the sick child, who will catch the frog to be put in the soup. Naciye Teyze’s çiğbörek pastries are the most delicious part of the game. While Gökçe tells about her memory of her sick grandmother and baby turtles that turn upside down, she thinks, “I can do whatever I want in life!” The joy of childhood overflows from balconies and gardens…
