Increased communication with illustrators and writers abroad has expanded young artists' vision in picture books.

When attending the 2017 Bologna Children's Book Fair, Heimi was impressed by the Portuguese edition of Batata Chaca Chaca, a picture book by Yara Kono. In the book, the author has guests for dinner and a lot of ideas about how to prepare a very tasty meal. But, in order to have the meal ready on time, Yara requires help from the reader.

"Although I do not understand the text in its Portuguese edition, it warms my heart. There is something magical about picture books, which can build a communication bridge beyond language and age," Heimi says, smiling.
