Comments Off on Salvi & Maya discover the Netherlands

With great pleasure I want to introduce to you a new children’s book about the Netherlands.

                                 ‘Salvi & Maya discover the Netherlands’

The book is a very friendly and original way to introduce or promote the Netherlands within your network or of course as a special gift for children.

It is a book for children from the age of 4-8 years old. It takes the child on a trip to discover the Netherlands.

They visit well known places such as ‘de Keukenhof’, ‘Kinderdijk’, Gouda and Amsterdam.

The main aim is for children to get to know several Dutch cities and Dutch culture.

In addition, several tidbits about the Netherlands are included in the back of the book. This way the book will be interesting for children and adults of all ages who want to know more about the Netherlands.

The size is very convenient, just about paper size A5 and it has 28 pages. The pages are full color printed on 200 grams varnished paper.

The book is available in 3 languages:


Dutch:                 Salvi & Maya ontdekken Nederland                      isbn  9789082034400

English:               Salvi & Maya discover the Netherlands                isbn  9789082034417

Spanish:              Salvi & Maya descubren Holanda                         isbn  9789082034424


A French version is expected this autumn/winter.


I have attached some examples of the book to this message.

Please send me a message if you have any questions regarding this message or if you wish for more information.

With kind regards,
