Who are we?

Die Bücherpiraten (book pirates) captivate children and get them interested in books. 
We are a charitable organization and have set ourselves the goal of enabling children and young people to experience literature creatively and independently. Our projects are aimed at children and young people between the ages of 3 and 19. Literature festivals, reading, writing and acting groups: our children’s literature center in the old town of Lübeck, Germany, is home to all. Our Story-Seeker project has spread to hundreds of different preschool nurseries.
The association is solely financed through private donations. If you would like to donate, you can do so here.
If you would like to find out more, simply visit our website at www.buecherpiraten.de or pay us a visit in the children’s literature center.

Bilingual-picturebooks.org is only made possible through donations.

To add a new picture book to the database, we organize a three-day writing workshop with an author for the children. Other children illustrate the manuscript created there in a separate three-day workshop with an illustrator.
We then send the story to professional, certified translators. They write the first six versions of the book. Then we give the seven versions to our over 60 translators, proofreaders and audiobook narrators. The 1,001 translations of the picture book are created bit by bit in cooperation with them.

By donating, you can help us to continue doing what we do.
