Collection of mini-books
The mini-books were also innovative in how they were produced – children between the ages of 3 and 6 created the story and illustrations under the guidance of their childhood educators.
The mini-books are all bilingual – in one of the partnership languages and English – so children could start at an early age to contact a second language. We consider this factor as another element of product innovation. The potential of transferability to other geographies is also great since all mini-books have the story written in English.
The potential for mini-books on gender equality to be transferable is substantial because all kindergartens, parents and caregivers who want to use mini-books can browse, download and print each one of the mini-books available on the website and social media networks. This way, they could make awareness raising children about gender and equality issues.
Each of the two kindergartens participating in the project created one story, so each national mini-book has two stories. So, we have a collection of four mini-books with two stories from each partner country, eight stories in total. The mini-books were printed enough to offer all children attending all municipal kindergartens in each country. In this way, the impact of this intellectual product is also high!
