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.

This one is delightful! The pictures are fun. It is bilingual. German first then English under. I was proud that I actually could read the German. There were a couple Questionables. Like, so far I've not seen a German contraction. But it was there.
Though this starred a little girl, I think this would be a fun read for either gender. And just becuase it's a picture book doesn't make this simple. Adults can have fun, like I did, practicing either English or German while enjoying the story and fun creatures presented for comparison of large or small and extremes.
As it turned out, it was too repetitive. 'I am this.' 'You are that.' 'I am this.' 'You are that.'
Not much to read. Really not much to learn at all.

I thought it would be uninteresting to a child, to be read to in another language, but he asks for 'Bin ich klein' and it melts my heart!
Great book! We love it 😁
It is a good book for for someone trying to learn the German language.
Small amounts of text means one doesnt get swamped with too many words.
