Praise od books /Literary Clashes /Zderzenia literackie/ — literary workshops for kids aged 8—9 led by SYLWIA GRUDNIAK. During the workshops kids will have the chance to get a closer look at two picture books created by Iwona Chmielewska Trouble / Kłopot and Four ordinary bowls / Cztery zwykłe miski. Picture books are not very popular in Poland, although it’s a kind of book that teaches to look carefully at the world around you and focuses on important topics. During workshops kids will try to find answers to relevant questions like: is it worth to share, is it possible to share, what it means too much or too little, what are troubles really like and how to deal with them? Admission to the workshops is free.
