‘E Ka Kush E Ka’ Children’s Series

‘E Ka Kush E Ka’ Children’s Series

The “E Ka Kush e Ka” series seeks to include children and adults in a series of books and games through which they discover and rediscover cultural heritage as a bridge, linking us to the complexities of the world around us. Cultural heritage is not only about learning facts; it is an ideal educational and entertaining support for learning about and exploring new things, other people and our society. It is an instrument that helps with self-reflection, skills and mental vivacity… a path toward citizenship and mutual respect, where the search for meaning is foremost.
