Book Project with Sindelfingen Kids

In cooperation with the Bürgerstiftung Sindelfingen, TSF supports a book project which was initiated by kids@kita Gesamtförderverein der Sindelfinger KiTas, a friend’s association of Sindelfingen nursery schools. In the course of two years, students—together with the writer Anja Wickertsheim—compiled the book trilogy Die verborgenen Schätze von Sindelfingen (The Hidden Treasures of Sindelfingen). The seven-year-old to nine-year-old children developed the golden thread to three intertwined but yet independent stories. Furthermore, the second and third graders designed the illustrations to the stories themselves.
