On November 11, 2017, Estonian Institute will present the fresh publication “Estonian child – mild and wild” at the children’s morning “On ÜKS” at the Writers’ House. The book is written by children’s writer Kätlin Vainola and illustrated by Ulla Saar.

What is an Estonian child like?

The answer to this question is sought in the publication “Estonian child – mild and wild”, which reflects the life and activities of Estonian children. Step by step, it tries to find out what Estonian children are like, what they do and what they like.

The publication is based on the responses of the web-based cultural survey “Me too!” held in January and February 2017 among Estonian children.

The author Kätlin Vainola and the illustrator-designer Ulla Saar are presenting the publication at the Writers’ House, in the room with a black ceiling.

Drama students of Tallinna Kanutiaia Huvikool present etudes based on the book. Supervised by Meelis Sekk.

Everyone is welcome, both big and small!

The publication will be published in Estonian and in English, both on paper and on the web.

The book can be purchased at the children’s morning event, and later from Estonian Institute (Suur-Karja 14, Tallinn) and from bookstores all over Estonia.

The publication of the book has been supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

The Estonian Institute presents the publication also on November 9 at 1 p.m. at the balcony hall of the Estonian Children’s Literature Centre. That presentation is designed for school classes and is not opened to the general public.

The Estonian Institute would like to thank the Estonian Children’s Literature Centre, the Estonian Writers’ Union and Tallinna Kanutiaia Huvikool for cooperation.
