Bär ist Bär

A children's book that aims to educate children about racism.

Racism is a structural problem in Germany that has not been addressed for too long.

Especially at a young age, children can be sensitized to the topic more easily.

But parents must be given the opportunity to address racism so that it is more understandable for their children.

The story is about Bruno and Edgar. They are both bears, but they have different colors of fur and this "small" difference makes it difficult for both of them to feel empathy for each other. The book can be opened from both sides and thus the same story can be read from the other perspective.

The text was written by Bücherpädagogik while I create the illustrations for the story.

The book is still in development but planned to be published in early 2022.
