Die Bunte Bande – Das gestohlene Fahrrad. Ein inklusives Kinderbuch
Inclusive design, groundbreaking for Germany: A children’s book for everyone that can be read together and equally! Regardless of living without disability, with visual impairment, cognitive limitations, learning difficulties or German as a second language – there’s no stigmatisation or special treatment! This is made possible by a unique design concept that combines various forms of accessibility in an elegant and reader-friendly way to create an inclusive aesthetic.
Statement of the jury
The extraordinary book concept is groundbreaking in that it basically combines three books in one, as the story is presented in three different ways: once in the traditional sense, but in a large, clear script, then in a Braille version, and finally in a much simpler version formulated for children with cognitive difficulties. An exemplary, accessible book that not only excludes no-one, but also introduces children to the socially relevant topic of inclusion.
