The Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2019 takes place in April 1-4 and includes the participation of 18 Brazilian publishing companies. Among such participants are Editora Projeto, Lume Livros and Todolivro, which will be present at the event with the support of Brazilian Publishers, an industry project that promotes exports of Brazilian editorial content through a partnership between the Brazilian Book Chamber (CBL) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). Check out the complete list here.
Created on April 2, 1992, Editora Projeto takes to the fair one of the most interesting titles of its catalog: children’s book “Tom” (2012). Written by André Neves, the book presents the story of an autistic boy told by his brother. “It is the curious and innocent perspective of a child who notices the peculiar behavior of his brother and tries to understand what is going on inside him”, explains Anette Baldi, Director of Editora Projeto.
Lume Livros is specialized in non-fiction books. The purpose of the publishing company is to stimulate readers’ curiosity in the world in a light and good-humored way. One of the highlights of its catalog is “O que a gente come” (What we eat) (2017), which presents the history of eight types of food that are common in the Brazilian diet but usually disliked by children. It also includes 16 vegetarian recipes specially developed for book, inviting the young readers and their parents to explore possibilities in the kitchen and continue building our cookery history.
In the market for 58 years, Todolivro publishes children’s books destined for readers aged 0-9 including didactic and educational contents presented as illustrations and easy-to-read texts. Its catalog includes titles such as “Operações matemáticas de dividir” (Division math operations) and the “Escolinha: escrever e aprender” (School: writing and learning) series.
