The book “Vilenke and Maja” (Lithuanian) by Chane Levin can be purchased at the Good Will Foundation https://gvf.lt/en/e-shop/.
When you open this book, you will find three playful and educational poems: “Vilenke and Maja”, “A Bug” and “Not me”. The poems are close to the genre of rhymed fairy tale, they create a coherent, picturesque world centered on children and the inhabitants of living nature. The texts provide meaning to the values such as friendship, sharing, valuing one’s possessions. Laziness, distraction and disorder are hilariously mocked. Rhythmic poems tickle the ear and the developed plot stimulates the imagination.
The publishing of the book was partially financed by the Good Will Foundation.
Price 4 Eur.
