Online Reading and workshop will be held in German.
Read a little, create a lot with children’s book author Antje Damm live from her studio in Germany! We invite kids to join her for a reading of her book The Visitor
, which will be followed by an arts and crafts workshop.
is a story about friendship and shyness that plays out in a mini theatre, as a child unwittingly brings light and color―literally―into a lonely person's life.
Elise was frightened―of spiders, people, even trees. So she never went out, night or day. One day a strange thing flies in through the window and lands at her feet. And then there comes a knock at the door. Elise has a visitor who will change everything.
The unique artwork has a doll's house appeal. Antje Damm creates a diorama from cardboard and photographs the scenes, giving the illustrations a special luminosity and depth.
Use her techniques and let your imagination run wild to make your own pocket pet! After the reading, Antje Damm will teach kids how to create a secret “pocket pet”: make sure you have a matchbox, scissors, glue, construction paper, and coloring utensils (crayons, markers, or colored pencils).
