Antje Damm

Ask Me!

118 questions for children to get into conversation with each other. Revised new edition

In this new edition of Ask Me!, which was first published in 2002, Antje Damm has revised and rethought questions, illustrations and photographs. With this type of book, which was new at the time of its first publication, she still succeeds today in promoting conversations with children at eye level. With the help of the questions and illustrations, which are only meant to give an impulse, it is possible, for example, to think and talk about which place seems worth living in, what is worth collecting or what needs to be done every day.

This is a little book with big ideas. Sometimes provocative, always interesting, every page can be the start of a new discussion. Reading the questions, and looking at the pictures, each child will have different answers to give, and things to ask. The questions are intriguing, the images sometimes startling, sometimes beautiful, and always engaging.
