No. 21 | Chaos and order
When it comes to deciding whether a child’s room is chaotic or ordered, opinions often vary. But if parents patiently involve their children in the tidying up process they can show them, that creating order can even be fun. This is, at heart, the topic of Papperlapapp number 21.
No. 20 | Reading and writing
Children should be introduced to the wide world of the written language as early as possible so they have less difficulty learning to read and write further down the line. In Papperlapapp No. 20 we address the topic of reading and writing and once again fulfil our mission statement.
No. 19 | Electricity
Papperlapapp No. 19 sheds light on the subject of electricity. In humorous and fact-rich stories and contributions, the readers learn that electricity is actually a natural phenomenon that man has been able to exploit "on a grand scale" over the course of time.
No. 18 | Insects
Can you imagine a world without insects? Impossible, isn’t it? They are without a doubt the most useful animals on the planet and immensely important for our ecosystem. This and much more is explained in Papperlapapp No. 18.
No. 17 | Colours
In this issue the stories and illustrations are even more colourful than usual because the theme of Papperlapapp No. 17 is colours – our world would be quite dull and grey without them.
No. 16 | Family
Like it or not, everyone has a family of origin regardless of how this is formed. The word “family” has associations of longing for unconditional love and security, safety and support. But how are families made up nowadays?
No. 15 | Music
It’s true what they say – music is the soundtrack of our lives. Even very little babies and young children make all sorts of noises. They gurgle and cry, clap and tap. Papperlapapp Nr. 15 encourages kids to sing, make music of their own, listen to tunes and explore the sounds made during our day-to-day lives, in nature and by our own bodies.
No. 14 | In the woods
The woods is a peaceful, exciting and sometimes even secretive place, where there are many different kinds of plants and animals to discover. Papperlapapp No. 14 aims to inspire readers and listeners to explore the woods for themselves.
No. 13 | Oh, how embarassing!
We all suffer embarrassing moments and feel ashamed when other people happen to witness them. But if someone is there to help us through an embarrassing situation or listen to us recounting it, we don’t end up feeling so bad about ourselves. Plus, our relationship with that person will only grow stronger.
No. 12 | Theatre
Issue No. 12 sees us say: “We’re off to the theatre! Curtain up!” When we take to the stage, we can assume multiple roles and act out various scenarios in a flash. This is something that appeals to children in particular. As a wonderful by-product, acting helps children to develop their creativity and their social skills.
No. 11 | Dinosaurs
Papperlapapp No. 11 follows in the footsteps of the dinosaurs. We know everything we know about these creatures that disappeared from the face of the Earth 66 million years ago thanks to fossils. These precious discoveries are preserved, studied and exhibited in museums like the Natural History Museum in Vienna. But what happens in the museum when night falls?
No. 10 | Underwater
We don’t call Earth the blue planet for nothing: More than two thirds of the world’s surface is covered with water. And there’s a wide and wonderful universe under the surface. Papperlapapp No. 10 takes readers on an underwater journey.
No. 9 | Anger
It sure does feel good to let our feelings out, but does that apply to anger too? Is it OK to show that we are angry? Absolutely! In fact, that is exactly what we should do! And if those around us show a little understanding, our feelings of anger and irritation soon blow over. Sometimes, we may even find that anger helps us to assert ourselves.
No. 8 | Cooking
Cooking is a wonderful activity – the simplest ingredients can often be transformed into delicious culinary creations. And there’s no need to worry if a recipe doesn’t quite go to plan. All it takes is a bit of imagination and you can whip up a different dish altogether.
No. 7 | Magic
Who doesn’t wish they could do a bit of magic at least every now and then? But it’s just not that easy... Or is it?Papperlapapp No. 7 explores the topic in both a fun and philosophical way.
No. 6 | Bees
Bees are the most important working creatures on the planet. What better reason could there be for us to dedicate an entire issue of Papperlapapp to these tiny insects? Issue No. 6 takes a closer look at the natural marvels that bees perform, all to our benefit.
No. 5 | Boredom
All children get bored every now and then. Papperlapapp No. 5 reveals how the dreaded feeling of boredom can even turn out to be a positive force, encouraging full relaxation or inspiring fresh ideas and creativity.
No. 4 | Animals in Winter
When winter falls, we can cosy up inside with the heating on. But what do animals do? How do they survive the cold season?
No. 3 | Courage
No matter how old we are, we all have to put our courage to the test every so often. What might seem like the easiest thing in the world to one person may be a massive challenge for someone else.
No. 2 | Outer Space
Even little children have important questions to ask about the solar system, including: Where is Earth positioned in the universe? How far away is the Moon from Earth? Is there life on other planets?
No. 1 | Friendship
Friends make our lives better and brighter, starting from when we are really tiny. And that’s why the first-ever issue of Papperlapapp is all about friendship.
No. 23 | Secrets
Es kann schon vorkommen, dass wir mit unseren Mitmenschen in Streit geraten. Wenn wir jedoch Spielregeln wie gegenseitigen Respekt, Grenzensetzung, Versöhnung und Wiedergutmachung beachten, ist das nicht weiter schlimm. Auf die Streitkultur kommt es an, und die gute Nachricht ist: Sie lässt sich von klein auf lernen. Mehr dazu in Papperlapapp Nr. 22.
