On the morning Max was supposed to deliver a letter he was so frightened that his friend Alexa had to comfort him,
"We'll fly together!"
"Thank you," said Max, and they flew together...

"Wir fliegen zusammen!"
"Danke", sagte Max, und sie flogen zusammen...

A World Children's Book for Every Country on the Planet
From Afar to Zulu: The picture book Am I small? (ISBN: 149230977X) has been translated into over 100 languages since its publication. The story by author Philipp Winterberg is available for every country in the world in at least one national language. It is the world's first children's book covering the entire globe.
In Am I small? young and old readers alike accompany the girl Tamia on a journey full of wonders. Together they discover that size is relative and that Tamia is just right the way she is. "Enchanting" judges the trade journal Eselsohr; "wonderful for bilingual families, and kindergartens," says the Börsenblatt and the American book review magazine Kirkus Reviews kindly compliments "for children who enjoy lingering over pages full of magical creatures and whimsical details [...] told in simple and engaging words and imaginative pictures."
More than 200 translators have already participated in the World Children's Book. Sometimes the research took months, "I had to look for a Tibetan translator for almost a year," says Winterberg. The book is now also available in hundreds of language combinations, such as Spanish-Tagalog or German-Tigrinya - a language spoken in Ethiopia and Eritrea, whose script is reminiscent of children's drawings.
In the years and decades to come the World Children's Book project will continue to grow. The aim is to gradually translate Am I small? into over 500 languages.
