Little Gestalten

Little Gestalten

Nothing fosters children's imaginations better than a book. Good books can help children understand the world and learn a lot about life. They can pique their natural curiosity, impart knowledge, and hearten them to be empathetic or brave. With this in mind, Gestalten is launching a new list of books and other attractive products for children this Fall entitled Little Gestalten.

The world is, of course, already filled with wonderful children’s books. Still, there are always new and surprisingly different stories to be told, as well as fresh, creative illustrators and gifted storytellers who can change the way we see the world. These talents and voices inspired us to create Little Gestalten.

With Little Gestalten we aim to bring today’s innovative authors and illustrators to children. Whether in the form of a poetic picture book, a classic fairytale with a contemporary look and feel, or an original work of nonfiction addressing the concerns of today's young people, we hope you will enjoy discovering these new titles. Watch this space for details to come!
