Community helpers

Kinderratebuch-Berufe_in_der Stadt_cover2

Who helps people when something burns?
How is the mail arriving in the mailbox?
And who makes sure that the trash is not overflowing?

The following occupations have to be guessed by the children:

  • Polizist, a policeman
  • Feuerwehrmann, a firefighfter
  • Briefträger, a postman
  • Müllmann, a garbage man
  • Lehrerin a teacher.

These and other questions are being dealt with in the book about professions that are part of everyday life in the city. Children can, along with the description of parrot Pino, guess in German and English, which profession the requested person carries out, and this way get to know different jobs.

The children’s book author and social scientist Aditi Kataria has incorporated her experience in education in the children’s books of this series. After studying English Literature and Education she worked among others as a teacher. In this framework, she tested and already developed puzzles as a learning method and came up with the idea to write guessing books for children. A pedagogically valuable guessing fun!
