Reading Round Europe is an ongoing series here at Playing by the book which focusses on brilliant picture books from countries in Europe other than the UK and Ireland.
Where possible I highlight books from other countries which are either available in English translation, or which are wordless.
Reading Round Europe came about because although there’s a hugely rich world of children’s books written in English, I’m always interested in books from other cultures and traditions and am convinced the world would be a better place with more books in translation.
If you’ve any favourite books in translation please do contact me and suggest them – I love getting recommendations from readers and often end up reviewing such books here on the blog!
