Summary: Olívia é uma menina esperta, que sabe bem o que quer e tem plena noção de como usar algumas palavras para conseguir o que deseja. Quando tem de ficar sozinha enquanto os pais trabalham, ela diz que está muito "entediada". Como não gosta de ver a filha "entediada", papai Raul para imediatamente de trabalhar e, quando percebe, já está deitado no chão ao lado dela, brincando de filhinho e mamãe, ou cercado por um monte de bonecas. Para chamar a atenção de seu pai Luís, Olívia fala que está "desfalecendo", afinal de contas, desfalecer de fome é uma coisa muito séria, e Luís é o melhor cozinheiro da família. "Intrigante" é outra palavra de que Olívia gosta muito, isso porque todas as coisas do mundo são muito intrigantes para ela. Olívia quer saber, por exemplo, como seu papai Raul sabe brincar de boneca e seu papai Luís cozinha tão bem. Quer saber também como vai aprender a usar maquiagem e sapatos de salto alto, se na casa dela não mora nenhuma mulher. A família da Olívia é um pouco diferente, e totalmente "encantadora", outra palavra que ela adora usar.

ISBN: 9783407793737 ; 3407793731 
Summary: Mehr als Fussball: Der kleine Paul ist ein richtiger Junge, der gut Fussball spielt und mitmacht beim Ringen und Kämpfen. Doch als er in den Kindergarten kommt, interessiert er sich mehr für die Spiele der Mädchen. Mit Hilfe einer Barbie-Puppe und viel Geduld schafft es Paul, mit den Mädchen in Kontakt zu kommen. Sie lassen ihn endlich mitmachen bei ihren fantasievollen Rollenspielen. Als die anderen Jungen Paul wieder raus holen wollen, ergibt sich eine unerwartete Wendung. Zuletzt wird erneut Fussball gespielt, doch diesmal spielen alle mit. Die Geschichte ist einfühlsam und knapp entlang des Geschehens erzählt. Der Text gibt Informationen und zeichnet Dialoge auf. Geschlechtsbedingte Rollenzuschreibungen werden auf diese Weise kommentarlos gezeigt. Die farbigen Illustrationen stehen im Zentrum, ergänzen und erweitern die Geschichte, erzählen aber auch Unausgesprochenes. Pauls Gesichtsausdruck beispielsweise ist jeweils deutlich gezeichnet, doch die emotionale Wirkung bleibt offen. Ab Kindergartenalter ist das Buch zum Erzählen und Immer - Wieder - Anschauen sehr zu empfehlen.
