Benvenuti ABC

Made with love by 120 illustrators

inspired by

A big welcome to migrant kids

Italy welcomes every year a growing number of migrants and, among them, many children; Benvenuti ABC is designed for initial reception, to establish a dialogue, to snatch a smile.

This is the result of an initiative begun at the beginning of 2016, which saw the light thanks to the collaboration of 120 illustrators and many other people who have given their time and talents. We are happy and grateful, but not surprised: there are many volunteers who every day are dedicated to welcoming and integrating migrants in our country. 

Among them, the Fondazione Migrantes, involved since the beginning and helping us in spreading and distributing Benvenuti ABC in reception centres in Italy and anywhere we can make a child smile.

Do you want to organise a presentation of Benvenuti ABC in your school? Do you want to realise your own project with your class, your school or your association? Contact us for more information.

With Benvenuti ABC we introduce Edook, a digital library available to all Pubcoder users who wish to share a project made for children and teenagers; download Edook for free from the Apple Store or Google Play Store, it collects educational free content.
