Toni Kohm: Sam besucht Oma und Omi in Großbritannien
(Toni Kohm: Sam is going to visit grandma and granny in Great Britain)
The children's picture book "Sam besucht Oma und Omi in Großbritannien" was awarded the KIMI Siegel for diversity in Children's literature.
Jury voice:
A book that helps you to review and overcome prejudices in a fun way.
Review by Tebbie Niminde
The story is primarily about the adventurous visit to the grandparents. Also, other stories are told unobtrusively and in a variety of ways: about life in the big city or sexual orientation. The author does not use personal pronouns. Therefore the reader has the freedom to choose a gender for the main character. And last but not least, thanks to the impressively beautiful illustration, the children experience the importance of diversity.
